This chapter draws on critical legal scholarship to offer a reflection on links between the colonial foundations of the international legal order, legal anthropocentrism’s ‘subject-at-the-centre’, the Anthropocene, and proposals for a new international legal imaginary in the form of Earth system law and governance. The chapter asks what is at stake in legal anthropocentrism and reflects on what insights emerge when Earth system law and governance proposals are brought into theoretical encounter with the agentic forces of the planetary.
