Sentiocentrism, sentio-centrism, or sentientism is the philosophy that sentient individuals (i.e., basically conscious beings) are the center of moral concern. The philosophy posits that all and only sentient beings have intrinsic value and moral standing, thus they are regarded as moral patients; while the rest of the natural world only has instrumental value. Both humans and other sentient animals have rights and/or interests that must be considered.
