Home Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

 
Nature, philosophy: nature is usually defined as the part of reality that was not made or designed by humans. No properties can be attributed to nature. E.g. since contradiction is ultimately a language problem, one can say that nature cannot be contradictory. Not all forms of necessity can be attributed to nature, e.g. non-logical necessity and unnecessary existence. See also de re, de dicto, necessity de re, existence.

John Dewey on Nature - Dictionary of Arguments

Suhr I 156
Nature/17th century/Dewey/Suhr: The 17th century banishes goals from nature. Now qualities become something subjective.
Nature/modern times: In modern times nature is no longer opposed to the mind as something separate. Natural goals are something real: in the aesthetic work. Aesthetic enjoyment becomes an equally justified element of reality. (VsPlato).
