What is Nature with it’s description?

The human , physical or material world or universe is nature in the widest sense. “Nature” can mean the physical world’s phenomena as well as life in general.

Nature work is a big part of science, if not the only one. Also if humans are a natural part of life, human behavior is still treated as a different category from other natural phenomena.

The term “nature” comes from the Latin word “existence.” In ancient times it is called “born” and it is called “birth.” “important qualities.”

The Latin translation of the Greek word physis, which initially related to plants , animals and other charakters in the world, is most frequently used in ancient philosophy.

One of the extensions of the original notion is the idea of existence in general, the physical world, which was initiated with some core uses of the word by pre-Socratic philosopher (although this word at the time had a complex size particularly for Heraklytus), and has since become increasingly currency.

Over the last few decades, nature became a passive truth after the emergence of the new scientific method, which was regulated and guided by divine laws.

Increasingly nature was perceived as the part of reality deprived of intended intervention with the Industrial Revolution: it was therefore considered sacred by certain traditions (Rousseau or U.S.) or mere decorum for the Providence or the history of humankind (Hegel or Marx).

But at the same time, and particularly after Charles Darwin, a vitalist view of nature was born, closer to the pre-Cocratic view. “nature” also refers to geology and wildlife in the different uses of the term today.

The general domain of live plants and animals can be referred to by nature, and in some cases processes associated with inanimate subjects, such as the manner in which different types of subjects occur and alter themselves, such as the environment and geology of the earth.

The word “natural environment” or “wilderness” is often used to mean wilderness — wildlife, rocks and forests, and usually, things that have been or persist, notwithstanding human intervention.

Manufactured objects and the presence of human beings for example are usually not treated as part of nature unless they are labeled “human nature” or “all things.”

The more conventional definition of natural phenomena still to be found today implies a distinction between the real and the artificial, which is known as that which a human consciousness or a human mind has created.

The term “natural” can be distinguished from “unnatural” or “supernatural,” depending on the specific context.
