Semi-protected edit request on 9 June 2022[edit]

I suggest to add this recent paper published in ""Nature"" in the section "Further reading". It could be great also to refer to its contain in some parts.

Layna Droz, Hsun-Mei Chen, Hung-Tao Chu, Rika Fajrini, Jerry Imbong, Romaric Jannel, Orika Komatsubara et al., « Exploring the diversity of conceptualizations of nature in East and South-East Asia », Nature - Humanities & Social Sciences Communications, vol. 9, no 186,‎ 2022 (DOI

It is about the diversity of conceptualization of nature in East-Asia (in Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Filipino, Tagalog, Cebuano, Lumad, Indonesian, Burmese, Nepali, Khmer, and Mongolian). It includes of course explanations about the history of the idea of nature in Western thought.

It is explained for instance that "the term phusis comes from the Indo-European root *bhū —which primordial meaning is “to grow”".

It also suggest to remain open to the diversity of conceptualization of nature among the world, in particular in East-Asia. The authors emphasize the fact that "To take into consideration the diversity of conceptualizations of nature can lead to better decisions about sustainability and improve the acceptability and efficiency of environmental policies in each local context, as well as internationally."

Are the Phenomena part of Nature or vice versa?[edit]


so.... what to do ??? Are those just errors in Wikidata and Commons which need to be corrected or is it still an unsolved philosophical question? Regards --W like wiki good to know 05:59, 26 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not an issue for this article. As for it being 'an unsolved philosophical question', I'm not sure it is even that - just ambiguity resulting from less-than-precisely-defined words. AndyTheGrump (talk) 09:11, 26 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
