Nature and the natural, round 2

What is nature? What is it for something to be natural? We'll begin to address these questions by looking at a survey of a few common ways people have thought about nature and what is natural. Exploring these multifarious concepts leads, I think naturally, to the question of how these different conceptions of nature are related? Is there anything they all have in common? Is there really only one "nature"? Or do different senses of "nature" have genuinely distinct referents?

    Hello, Rodrigo. I'm following up on our discussion of General Semantics and Korzybski. I have a response to your arguments against it and the like, but it is too long to fit as a comment here. Could you perhaps share with me an email address of yours, so that I can email you my response there? If you read this Kenny, could you pass this message on to him.


    Thanks.
