Abstract

This chapter offers one passing presentation of the goal that the Oñati workshop set out towards. It is an attempt to draw together threads of philosophy, doctrine, policy, praxis and activism as an uneven thread in a far wider, urgent conversation bringing human rights and the environment into a new relationship. This new relationship necessarily requires, as I argue below, a radical worldview transformation inaugurating a new ‘human’ subjectivity and, inseparably, a new socio-juridical imaginary reflecting a new vision of ‘the world’.

Este artículo ofrece una presentación del objetivo que se marcó en el seminario celebrado en Oñati. Es un intento por unir aspectos de filosofía, doctrina, política, práctica y activismo en un único hilo, ofreciendo una conversación más amplia y urgente, que establezca una nueva relación entre los derechos humanos y el medio ambiente. Esta nueva relación requiere necesariamente, como se argumenta a continuación, una transformación radical en la visión del mundo, que dé paso a una nueva subjetividad “humana” e, inseparablemente, un nuevo imaginario socio-jurídico que refleje una nueva visión “del mundo”.
