Within the anthropocentric possibility, where the human being as a part of subjectivity has power to determine the status of subgroups including the environment, animal species, or to neglect the sanctuary of the existence of women, Derrida's carnophallogocentric concept is more interrelated with ecological attitudes. Along the same lines, Carol J. Adam's The Sexual Politics of Meat awakens awareness of the deforestation, exploitation, abuse, and injustice deeply rooted in the dominance, discourse and causes of the dark fates of both women and non-human animals. Furthermore, it renders new articles for equalities, justices, rights, idealism and even responsibilities which they are all settling down in the heart of Gifford's post-pastoral literature. She recalls a utopian zoon or what Gifford calls Arcadia wherein both humans and other creatures possess their own realm. Therefore, the aims of this article take into account, either explicitly or implicitly, both Derrida's constitutive concept and three of six central features of post-pastoralism, including an awe in attention to the natural world, awareness of culture as nature, and potential abuse of nature as the same of women and minorities.
