Humans are inherently anthropocentric. They can't not be something, we obviously think in terms of how things relate to us and can only see how we see. This applies to everything. An animal's world is very small and purely about its comfort, hunger, and reproduction- for an animal everything is reduced to those terms, it cannot perceive any other qualities in something. >>74971
Westerners are probably the least anthropocentric imo. The idea that they're particularly anthropocentric and others are somehow not, is a exactly a Western conceit.
Concerning animals. Aside from some selective Indian and Japanese practices that have religious reasons, Westerners invented animal rights and are the only ones to really care about them. That could be seen as anthropocentric though because 'caring about them' entails humanising them, which kind of denies their nature and makes them something self-indulgent, an item in an anthropocentric world than their own thing.
