Environmental controversies in Israel are characterised by the dominance of non-anthropocentric modes of reasoning. In that respect they are different from such debates in other Western countries. This is not accidental, but is related to a profound cleavage between a non-anthropocentric attitude and the Israeli-Zionist ethos of development, which has governed Israeli political thought since the 1930s.
