    Anthropocentrism refers to a human-centered, or “anthropocentric,” point of view. In philosophy, anthropocentrism can refer to the point of view that humans are the only, or primary, holders of moral standing. Anthropocentric value systems thus see nature in terms of its value to humans; while such a view might be seen most clearly in The book also is notable because Valentine turned the uniformitarianism phrase around to say “the past is the key to the present” and developed the idea that changes in past environments and ecosystems can be used to understand present configurations.

Since paleoecology has close roots in geological analysis, it has been heavily influenced by the concept of uniformitarianism, the principle that “the present is the key to the past.” This has been an important concept in the Earth sciences, and students interested in the key assumptions of uniformitarianism should read Gould Paleoecology is the study of the relationships between fossils and the ancient environments in which the fossilized organisms lived.
