Since the advent of the environmental discourse in the early seventies, a multiple set of critical academic voices has brought into question the human-centered approach, or anthropocentrism, that has ruled the relationship between humans and nature over years. A shift of the status quo has been proposed by replacing humans, either by all or a part of life (biocentrism) or even by ecosystems (ecocentrism), in the center of nature. In this context, this paper comprises an attempt for illustrating how the anthropocentric parlance, inspired theoretically and empirically in traditional Western principles, has permeated the contents of the most transcendental international instruments, likewise other declarations and resolutions worldwide. In the end, there will be a brief approach about how legislations are receiving these new ecofriendly tendencies nowadays.
