The idea of nature is most widely used in philosophy.
Aristotle and Descartes relied on the concept of nature to explain the fundamental points of their view. Even contemporary philosophy employs this idea, yet it is one of the most ill-defined ideas.
Aristotle used the idea of nature to explain that which defines the essence of something. The essence is the properties that define what a thing is. For example, the essence of water will be its molecular structure.
Then to act in accordance with nature means to consider the actual definition of each thing.
The idea of nature is sometimes used to refer to anything that exists as part of the physical world.
Natural is also used to refer to a spontaneous process instead of one that occurs as a deliberate result. For example, naturally grown plants vs artificially grown plants.
Nature in this sense is related to spontaneity, while nurture is the outcome of a cultural process. For example, education is seen as a process against nature. But any human development is shaped by the activity of interaction with other humans.
Then, for instance, there is no such thing as the natural development of human language.
The idea of nature can also be used to express the wilderness - that which lies at the edge of a cultural process.
If we consider the environmental impact on the whole ecosystem, there may be no real wild place left on our planet. In a looser sense, a walk in the forest or a trip on the ocean may be an experience that we can consider natural.
In the past millennia, nature has been used as the expression of the divine.
The idea of nature is part of most religions. It takes on specific forms, such as a mountain, sun, ocean, or fire, to include the whole sphere of existence.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
