This project investigates predominant attitudes towards nature that have existed throughout time in Western societies. The concept of “nature” has been influenced by historical, social and cultural circumstances and additionally is shaped by subjective emotions. Therefore, “nature” has different meanings and becomes a complex matter. We aim at getting a closer understanding of what “nature” actually is, by looking on how people in the past have construed that term. Nature as such does not exist, since its meaning is attached to beliefs and emotions. We cover the dimensions “Philosophy and Science” and “History and Culture”, as our method is determined by operating with relevant concepts, namely nature, human beings and society, of which we analyse the understanding via historical, both primary and secondary sources.
