Psychology of Environmental Law

The environmental consequences that law seeks to manage operate through and affect the nonhuman animals, plants, geography, and processes that make up much of human surroundings. This chapter argues that psychology can help inform people’s perceptions of, understanding of, and response to the nonhuman aspects of environmental harm. The nonhuman character of many environmental impacts triggers a distinctive set of psychological phenomena, including those related to valuation, empathy, attention, natural versus manmade risks, and anthropocentrism.

Keywords:   nonhuman, manmade, natural, empathy, valuation, attention, anthropocentrism
