In John Dewey: Being, nature, and experience. Dewey held that this philosophy of nature was drastically impoverished. Rejecting any dualism between being and experience, he proposed that all things are subject to change and do change. There is no static being, and there is no changeless nature.   A Treatise of Human Nature – David Hume “no man has influenced the history of philosophy to a deeper or more disturbing degree” – Isaiah Berlin. In his treatise, he attempts to use the same scientific method of reasoning in order to inquire into human psychology – namely to glimpse the depth of our understanding and potential.

Authors such as Aristotle and Descartes relied on the concept of nature to explain the fundamental tenets of their views, without ever attempting to define the concept. Even in contemporary philosophy, the idea is oftentimes employed, in different forms. The book intends to guide people on how to return to the laws and ways of nature to maintain the balance of the Tao. Tzu is also the father of the Taoist philosophy. Taoism, along with Buddhism and Confucianism, is the pillar of ancient Chinese thought. Man learns that Nature is awe-inspiring, all-powerful and full of dangerous beauty. Man is limited by nature's fences; there are some places in Nature that man is incapable of traversing—-be it too daunting emotionally, as it was for Thoreau in Ktaadn, or simply a physical impossibility.
