Philosophy of Nature Book Collection

Philosophy of Nature Book Collection, 1811-1993

The collection's focus is on material that illuminates the ways in which humans have conceptualized their place in the natural world as well as their relationship to nature, both individually and as societies. The theme is inclusive, but takes as its central core the reconceptualization of humans and nature that occurred during the 19th century with the ideas and discoveries of, among others, Kant, Darwin, and Huxley. The collection also documents the effects of industrialization on Western society. Comprised chiefly of books and manuscripts, the Philosophy of Nature Collection was acquired through the generosity of a grant from Michal and William Rieckmann.
