Arturo Flores Sterbas Proposal On Reconciling Anthropocentric and Non-Anthropocentric Views In Sterbas Proposal the reconciliation of the Anthropocentric and Non-anthropocentric views lies in three Principles that where designed to reconcile these views The first Principle is called the Principal of Human defense This Principle of Human defense allows us to defend ourselves and other human beings from harmful aggression first against our persons and the persons of other human beings that we are Committed to or happen to care about and second against our justifiably held property and of other human beings that we are committed to or happen to care about The second Principle is called the Principle of Human Preservation There is a principle of self-preservation in human ethics that permits actions that are necessary for meeting ones own basic needs or the basic needs of other people even if this requires failing to meet the basic needs of other people The third Principle is called the Principle of dissproportionality This Principle is strictly analogous to the principle in human ethics mentioned previously that prohibits meeting some peoples non-basic or luxury needs by aggressing against the basic needs of other people In sum Sterbas argued that whether we endorsed an anthropocentric or a non-anthropocentric environmental ethics we should favor a Principle of human preservation and a principle of disproportionality as has interpreted In the past failure to recognize the important of a principle of human defense and principle of human reservation has led philosopher to over estimate the amount of sacrifice required of humans
