Annotation:Analyzed in terms of the despotic, stewardship, and citizenship models introduced by the Callicott, Islam is found “unambiguously” anthropocentric. In this short section, he focuses on one tenth-century manuscript, The Case of the Animals versus Man Before the King of the Jinn, in order to demonstrate its environmental ethic based on an Islamic understanding of humankind’s rule over the earth guided by virtues of obedience to God, good character, and good works.
