Remarks on Nature

What “nature” is in any given period and why it is what it is are variables that are wholly dependent on historically shifting relations between humankind and our environment. As such, nature will still be nature with or without people, as deserts and glaciers exemplify. The definitions, ambiguity and oppositions rest, so to speak, with us, constantly engaged as we are in exchanges and negotiations with our surroundings.
