Rumination of Ecological Ethics in Green Hills of Africa: Hemingway’s Instrumentalized Ego and the Ecologist Val Plumwood’s Ecological Ego (Published)

This paper tends to analyze human instrumental intentionality in Earnest Hemingway’s Green Hills of Africa in accordance with Australian ecologist, Val Plumwood’s argument over “instrumentalized ego.” By probing into Hemingway’s African hunting memoir defined as ecological literary demonstration, the following content will be positioned with three orientations: first, criticizing human instrumentalized intention relating to egoism; second, examining how human beings are bound with profit intention with fictitious anthropocentric attitude toward other creatures on earth; third, exploring possible solutions to cope with human-centered crisis for maintaining amicable correlation between humans and nonhumans in ecological system.
