Mankind has an unhealthy relationship with the planet. This is reinforced by common conceptions and uses of the law. This book aims to explore how alternative conceptions of law through the concept of rights for nature can readdress this unhealthy relationship. This book explores how John Locke's conception of rights has led to an instrumental relationship with nature that has permeated through international environmental law and into human rights. Human rights continue the unhealthy relationship. Human Right's methods of redress and their systemic failings from a truly environmental Gaian perspective are examined This essay proposes a new system of rights which can enhance and improve the unhealthy relationship between mankind and nature. This book proposes a new locus for laws and an alternative conception of legality in light of this emergent post-anthropocentric perspective.
