This study investigates the understanding of nature in the modern day society. To examine this understanding, the study analyses the book “og Den Store Flugt” of the Danish author Andrea Hejlskov, who in 2011 moved to Sweden to live in a forest. The study then takes a closer look at three philosophers, Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Thomas Hobbes who primarily focuses on society and the human state of nature, and Hans Fink, who focus on nature as a term. With this new knowledge the study is able to conclude on respectively the terms nature and society and Andrea Hejlskovs great escape. It is shown that the two terms has a certain complexity and can be turned and twisted. In addition, Andrea Hejlskov sees nature as a rescuing element in terms of bringing her family back together, and society as the thing that tore them apart. But since Andrea Hejlskov brings multiple elements from society with her into the woods, it is questioned whether this great escape is possible in its entirety.
