Nature is the nurturer, the provider, and the mother of creation. All these names we associate with nature, and we also realize that she constantly works to ensure everything is part of a life cycle. that cycle of life is disrupted by human interference, negligence, destruction, and a stripping of her precious resources. We take and we take never giving back, we never show the gratitude we should for her generosity. We think if resources are here today, they will remain for years to come. This false way of thinking obstructs our ability to perceive how severely we disrupt nature in not allowing her to take her course.

In From Nature, by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emerson talks about nature and how it communicates with man. He says exactly how life is, using the sunshine as an example of how if can shine on certain people, and people always can see it. This is a very good example of how man can use nature to do many things in his life. Emerson talks about exactly how these things can be accomplished.
Emerson has very good feelings towards nature and made sure he told it in this story. The statement, "The sun illuminates only they eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child," I believe that this is a very good statement in the fact that it talks about the sunshine illuminating the

"We hunt the fly remorselessly; also the flea, the rat, the snake, the disease germ and a thousand other creatures which he pronounced good, and was satisfied with, and which we loudly praise and approve--with our mouths" (Twain 232). These are all interesting points to consider and they make sense for the reader who is open-minded enough to consider them.The essay "The Lowest Animal" goes into an in- depth comparison between man and other animals.

Nature vs. Nurture
At the same time, students in the Social Studies classroom begin to investigate the essential question, "Why do human beings act the way they do?" Students explore the Nature vs. Nurture debate. "Do human beings act the way they do because of genetics or do human beings act the way they do because of their environment?" Students read and discuss material presenting both sides of the issue. They are then asked to connect this material to their own life experiences and to the play.
Before seeing the film based on the work of biologist Desmond Morris, students are asked to describe their own behavior in relationships from early childhood to the present. Students write

In The PrinceNiccolo Machiavelli presents a view of governing a state that is drastically different from that of humanists of his time. Machiavelli believes the ruling Prince should be the sole authority determining every aspect of the state and put in effect a policy which would serve his best interests. These interests were gaining, maintaining, and expanding his political power.1 His understanding of human nature was a complete contradiction of what humanists believed and taught. Machiavelli strongly promoted a secular society and felt morality was not necessary but in fact stood in the way of an effectively governed principality.2 Though in come cases Machiavelli's suggestions seem

What Human Beings Do to the Nature is Still Bad
Farmers rely on rainfall to feed their crops. The fishermen depend on the sea to survive. All foods that human beings get, every breath of fresh air, and every comfortable rest environment are all come from nature. With these, people's technology is improving day by day, and the quality of life is getting higher and higher. Over time, people take for granted that the benefits of nature are well deserved. So who will protect the natural environment? Look at what we have done facing the nature. Keep asking for the earth, selfish destruction or protection?

The Hidden Nature - Literary Analysis of Lord of The Flies
All books are written with a purpose - and that is to illuminate a path one hopes or fears humanity will take. However, what differentiates between a compelling book and a terrible one is the delivery of the message. An effective novel should have an overarching theme that speaks volumes, accompanied with dynamic characters to capture the reader. William Golding’s Lord of The Flies combines a strong theme it delivers about the savage nature of humans, empowered with the use of symbols, and its unique characters to create a compelling novel.
The words of Golding deliver a profound theme— the true

argumentative subject in the scientific world. Some psychologists and scientists share the view
that our behavioral aspects originate only from the environmental factors of our upbringing.
While other opposing specialists argue the outlook in science that agrees with the naturalist idea.
This concept of naturalistic ideas supports the hereditary genetic framework, inherited from our

The story of Heathcliff, the sadistic protagonist of Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights" is so upset that Edgar Linton does not want his lovely daughter, Cathy, to hear it. Heathcliff and Cathy, two prominent characters in the novel, interact in the second half of the novel. Heathcliff's passages reveal that the tortured character comes about from a childhood without the care of parents (33) while Cathy's goodness (164) reflects her being raised by a loving father. The different supervision each character experienced while growing up is reflected by their behavior, showing that nurture is a greater factor over one's personality than nature.

Natural governments are created to unite a group of people, and to serve them respect, dignity, and safety. No government is perfect, simply because people are not all perfect. The flaws of society are depicted in the book, Lord of the Flies by William Golding. The natural government was assembled first by intelligence, then by force. In the beginning, the setting was peaceful, with the only worry being the question of survival. As the time wears on, flaws in the community dramatically change the government, and Jack asserts his power through force. In the end

What makes us operate in life the way we do? Are we genetically predisposed to have
certain behavioral traits — or are we a product of the various experiences we have throughout
life. The nature versus nurture debate is one of the oldest and most controversial debates in
psychology. It’s popularity and relevance comes from our innate desire to become better as a
society, through having a deeper understanding of what makes us human. The contradiction of
these two concepts has produced a vast amount of information throughout history based on the
differences between nature and nurture.

Nature is the phenomena of the physical world collectively, including plants, animals, the landscape, and other features and products of the earth, as opposed to humans or human creations. Nature in ‘Frankenstein’ and ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ creates hope for the two main characters in times of isolation and destruction.

In Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea, Santiago is confronted by a series of sharks, which come in a specific order. This order is significant in a few ways. One significance in the order in which the sharks come is that it shows us how nature is organized and arranged. In this book, Hemingway seems to view nature as having a specific arrangement and believes that things in nature work in a specific way. The sequence of the sharks show Hemingway's ideas about nature. Santiago first encounters the Mako shark, which is described as "beautiful and noble and knows no fear of anything," and "a fish built to feed on all the fishes in the sea."

. Therefore, the scholar believes the combination of genetics and their environment influences human behavior.
According to Gottlieb (2000), most psychologists accept that both genes and environment are necessarily involved in all outcomes of individual development, thus the nature/nurture theory. Social workers can now apply this theory to other situations similar to Joe’s so they can assess the parents as well as their environment, such as their friends, teacher, and employers to get a better understanding of the child. The social workers can then provide the family resources in order to intervene and diminish the child’s behavior until it is completely eliminated. However, according to Perry

A question that often pops into one’s mind while reading through Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” is ‘is the creature Victor Frankenstein created human?’. Author Mary Shelley introduces Frankenstein’s creature as an object made up of mismatched human components, who later on develops and begins to learn human language and behaviour. While anatomically he may resemble a human it is clear he cannot behave as one, despite his moments of eloquence and obvious intelligence, he always reverts to a more animalistic nature.

Throughout the entire history of art, whether in the European tradition or outside of it, nature was a subject that was constantly explored by artists. Naturalistic paintings were used to portray different emotional themes or add to the mood of a painting. British artist John Constables The Haywain and Cuckoo Flying over New Verdure by Yosa Buson, a Japanese artist, both feature very simple naturalistic settings. In The Haywain (pg. 839, Slide 28-53), Constable illustrates his perceived oneness between man and his surroundings.

The short story, 'The Block' by Mark O'Connor, explores human nature and conflict through the experiences of Gavin when he was a child. The short story portrays jealousy, competitive attitudes, possessiveness and arrogance which allows the readers to identify the consequences of conflict and how different values and opinions can lead to misunderstandings and even death.
Human nature is displayed through the use of literary components. The quote, "There seems to be something in my nature that makes me hate being defenceless", portrays Gavin as vulnerable and has a lack of authority. This is reinforced when Gavin and

Australia has long been associated with a laidback, easy-going lifestyle and a certain nonchalance when it comes to politics. Ask the average Australian who their favourite Prime Minister or local member of Parliament is, and you’ll more than likely get a variation of two replies – “dunno” or “don’t care, mate.” Seemingly rooted in the Australian identity and way of life is this casual disaffection for politics, and youth in particular have long been associated with an ingrained detachment from the political process.

In my opinion, “Nurture” is the biggest influence on person’s behavior/personality. I can support my argument in the support of nurture through my own example.

Nature vs Nurture: The Dichotomy of Gender Roles
The belief that gender roles are inherently biological is a cultural fallacy, which can lead to an inability to effectively communicate when we do not assess each individual’s personality. Research of this topic is necessary in order to learn how to completely understand how to communicate. When trying to communicate with an individual there are more variables than simply gender that need to be assessed. However, there are many ways that society implies that this is not necessary. While human biology dictates whatever sex we are, the way that we are raised is what ultimately determines how masculine or feminine a person acts or feels.

This idea is explored in Hamlet’s “to be or not to be” soliloquy, where he realizes that we suffer the “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” rather than “by opposing, end them”, because of the “Dread of something after death”; the “undiscovered country”.

Man-made things are 'long worn out' by springs of water, the many springs (the many change of seasons - time), but yet it is because of these natural things that the nettles thrive. No matter how clean and cultivated the farmer tries to make his yard, the dust and nettles will always survive - the refreshing rain 'springs' which gives the sense of purifying; only helps nature to grow, and at the same time corrodes man-made things. Not only does the poet consider nettles (nature) to be above unnatural things, but also he deems

The thesis of this paper is that Thomas Hobbes' first three "Laws of Nature" explain the evolution of cooperation in a state of nature, and are a prime example of how the modern state can protect an individual. Hobbes' view is that in a state of nature, where there is no system of government or ruling authority, individuals would join into a social contract to protect their peace and security. His first three "Laws of Nature" are what people will seek out before entering that social contract (Hobbes, 71).His first law is divided into two parts or as he calls them, "branches." The first law is "to seek peace" (Hobbes, 71). The most important thing to an individual is to be protected

He continues to wax lyrical about his passion, commenting how "his desires, like fell and cruel hounds, e'er since pursue him". Orsino laments how he is so in love with Olivia that he is totally mesmerised by her. One inference which can be made of Orsino's character at this moment is his masochistic nature; savouring the pain of love, drowning himself in self-pity and acting ever so restless. It is worthwhile to note that throughout Orsino's lovelorn confessions, he has neither a glimpse nor idea of the

In the 17th century puritans believed that God was the reason why every little thing happened in the world. On page 143 Bradstreet writes, “Being thus arrived in a good harbor and brought safe to land, they feel upon their knees and blessed the God of heaven, who had brought them over the vast and furious ocean…”.

within the boundaries of the movement. The authors used an array of metaphors, symbolism, and imagery to convey an underlying belief. Blake and Wordsworth both incorporate their beliefs into their works through unique techniques and themes that center around the portrayal of children, women, and nature. These themes are used in several of both Blake and Wordsworth’s to express their views of time, love, and the sublime, areas of which are common among romantic literature.
Blake and Wordsworth both used children as a source of symbolism for their beliefs about the nature of man. The portrayal of children allowed the authors to comment on the effects of time on human nature. Also, the use of
