|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.|

Monod/Francois Jacob: thesis: nature is a "hobbyist" (bricolage). Opportunism prevails, coincidence and complete lack of direction (Stuart KauffmanVs).
Kauffman: the forced moves can also be found by a blind hobbyist.
Definiton Bricolage/Lévi Strauss: the bricolage can be guided by the characteristics of the material technique, the engineer, on the other hand, demands completely formable material.
