Human Decentred Education

A human decentred moral philosophy does not deny the uniqueness and value of humanity. Rather, it celebrates human uniqueness and value in its potential to contribute to the mutual flourishing of life in new and unexplored ways. From a human development and cultural evolution perspective, the current paradigm that exerts superiority and dominance over other life is a stage that must be transcended and included in a larger perspective. Responding to the existential risks posed by the dominant anthropocentric worldview, education is now charged to contribute to human development that expands beyond the human-centred, towards more eco-centric or integral ways of being in the world. These ways of being are explored through four themes in ‘Article Seven’.
