Short description:

Full description:

Historically, up to modern times, the philosophy of nature has generally been understood as a reflection on the physical world, which makes up the whole of the natural sciences. Nowadays, the philosophy of nature is often referred to as philosophical reflection on the material world. It goes beyond the scope of natural sciences research because of the impossibility of using methods that are relevant to these sciences. The philosophy of nature examines material existence as a variable being. The object of interest in the philosophy of nature is a material being that exists in nature, ie, being in the stream of time. The task of natural philosophy is to construct or apply the theory that explains the basic structure of the living and non-living material bodies. The philosophy of nature is an independent philosophical discipline, differently connected with the natural and philosophical sciences. Linking to the natural sciences is manifested in the fact that the facts relating to the subject matter should first be established. In this regard, the results of the natural sciences are helpful. They are a source of information about the world around us. This information is then superstructured philosophical reflection.
