Example: Historically the most famous example of anthropocentrism was the insistence that the earth was at the centre of the universe. The argument went that since Man was the crown of creation all of the other planets (and originally all the stars) must orbit the earth, since Man's home was obviously the centre of creation. Definition: an inclination to evaluate reality exclusively in terms of human values.
