The paper explores two perspectives of humanity's role on Earth. The author introduces the concept of biocentrism and determines why mankind's uniqueness charges it with the responsibility of protecting the environment, not only existing in it. The human being possesses the ability to establish moral norms, and thus should regard the environment as having the highest value, in spite of modern society's ever-increasing needs.
