Davion, Victoria. "Anthropocentrism, Artificial Intelligence, and Moral Network Theory: An Ecofeminist Perspective." Environmental Values 11, no. 2 (2002): 163–76. doi:10.3197/096327102129341037.

This paper critiques a conception of intelligence central in AI, and a related concept of reason central in moral philosophy, from an ecological feminist perspective. I argue that ecofeminist critique of human/nature dualisms offers insight into the durability of both problematic conceptions, and into the direction of research programmes. I conclude by arguing for the importance of keeping political analysis in the forefront of science and environmental ethics.
