    Anthropocentrism as the Scapegoat of the Environmental Crisis: A Review.L. Droz - 2022 - Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics 22:25-49.
    Anthropocentrism has been claimed to be the root of the global environmental crisis. Based on a multidisciplinary and multilingual literature review, this article proposes a conceptual analysis of ‘anthropocentrism’ and reconstructs the often implicit argument that links anthropocentrism to the environmental crisis.

Moreover, bioethics may illuminate how these features can become an asset to sanitary engineering in light of (...)

  3. Ethics and Risks in Sustainable Civilian Nuclear Energy Development in Vietnam.L. Naidu & R. Moorthy - 2022 - Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics 22:1-12.

However, the country faces a challenging task in meeting rising energy demand and the need to securitize energy while addressing the negative environmental impact of fossil fuel utilization. Growing concerns about sustainable development have led Vietnam to develop civilian nuclear energy for electricity generation. Nuclear power is widely recognized as a clean, mature and reliable energy source. Its inclusion in Vietnam’s energy mix by 2030 is expected to supplement other energy (...)
