Recognising rights for nature: a negotiation of principle and pragmatism
This paper investigates the tensions inherent in the notion of a non-anthropocentric earth justice system predicated on rights for nature. It considers whether metaethical frameworks based on the notion of ecocentrism are competent to inform and engender the development of legal and political interventions for representing the interests of non human entities. In particular, it considers the extent to which tensions between pragmatism and principle may hinder the development of an effective earth jurisprudence.
