    each other, more so than he explicitly talks about collapse (24). However, his explanations are still applicable to Diamond’s analysis. Redman explores Western anthropocentrism in regards to nature, and Diamond’s argument is very anthropocentric. For come clear reasons, that makes sense; it is hard to look at a cultural collapse when many species don’t have a social structure as humans define it. Redman also says that the contemporary view of the environment is that is on the brink of collapse, humanity flirting with catastrophic failure. Diamond’s plan is meant to analyze collapse, so it is going to naturally act as if a society is -- or soon will be -- facing social collapse.
