From nature what does Emerson mean by nature?
In Ralph Waldo Emerson's Nature, Emerson first introduces the concept of "nature" in the first chapter. He sees nature as something that is always there, but not necessarily accessible, just like the stars. The mind is open to the influence of natural things.

What does melancholy mean in this passage from Emersons Nature For nature is not always tricked in holiday attire but the same scene which yesterday breathed perfume and glittered as for?
Was highly influenced by it.
Nature can inspire the human spirit.
Nature consists of the whole physical environment in which humans live. It consists of everything that can be explained and demonstrated through the scientific method. It is …everything we can observe and measure. Nature consists of certain patterns or "laws" that govern how things work. Nature includes nonliving matter such as planets, stars, moons, and galaxies as well as living matter such as plants and animals.

Natural means ;ordinary daily things.For example,like my hair is natural, my legs are natural my ears are natural.
Naturalism is the understanding that there is a single, natural world as shown by science, and that we are completely included in it. Naturalism holds that everything we… are and do is connected to the rest of the world and derived from conditions that precede us and surround us. Each of us is an unfolding natural process, and every aspect of that process is caused, and is a cause itself. So we are fully caused creatures, and seeing just how we are caused gives us power and control, while encouraging compassion and humility. By understanding consciousness, choice, and even our highest capacities as materially based, naturalism re-enchants the physical world, allowing us to be at home in the universe. Naturalism shows our full connection to the world and others, it leads to an ethics of compassion, and it gives us far greater control over our circumstances. = Connection - Compassion - Control = Connection: Everything we are and do is completely connected to the rest of the world. Our bodies and minds are shaped in their entirety by conditions that precede us and surround us. Each of us is an unfolding, natural process, and every aspect of that process is caused, and is a cause itself. We are therefore entirely at home in the physical universe. Compassion: Seeing that we are fully caused creatures - not self-caused - we can no longer take or assign ultimate credit or blame for what we do. This leads to an ethics of compassion and understanding, both toward ourselves and others. We see that there but for circumstances go I. We would have been the homeless person in front of us, the convict, or the addict, had we been given their genetic and environmental lot in life. Control: Understanding how we are caused to behave as we do gives us increased powers of prediction and control. Instead of supposing people can simply will themselves to be otherwise, we concentrate our energies on creating the conditions which promote constructive personal and social change. The ethics of compassion is matched by a practical efficacy based in scientific knowledge. Now, here's a "trapped in the elevator" speech to give you a bit more detail: = - Introducing Naturalism - = Naturalism, in essence, is simply the idea that human beings are completely included in the natural world: there's nothing supernatural about us. Naturalism is based on science as the best, most reliable means for discovering what exists. Science shows that each and every aspect of a human being comes from and is completely connected to the natural world, and is understandable in terms of those connections. The naturalist view of ourselves is of course very different from traditional religious or supernatural understandings, and it has profound implications. We don't have souls that continue after death. Instead, we are fully physical creatures, fully caused to be who we are. We don't have free will in the sense of being able to choose or decide without being fully caused in our choices or decisions. Instead, as individuals we are part of the natural unfolding of the universe in all its amazing complexity. By understanding ourselves as fully caused, and by seeing just how we are caused (by our genetic endowment, upbringing, and social environments), we dramatically enhance our powers of prediction and control, both in our personal lives and in the larger social arena. Naturalism focuses our attention on what works, increasing self-efficacy and encouraging science-based, progressive social policies in areas such as criminal justice, social inequality, behavioral health, and the environment. Also, since we see that we aren't the ultimate originators of ourselves or our behavior, we can't take ultimate credit or blame for what we do. This reduces unwarranted self-righteousness, moral superiority, pride, shame, and guilt. And since we see others as fully caused - for instance substance abusers, criminal offenders, the destitute and homeless - we become less blaming, less punitive and more compassionate and understanding. People don't create themselves, so responsibility for their character and behavior isn't ultimately theirs, but is distributed over the many factors that created them. And after all, were we given their environmental and genetic conditions, we would have become what they are, and acted just as they did: there but for circumstances go I. This insight provides the basis for a naturalistic ethics of empathy and compassion that guides personal behavior and grounds effective social policy. As mentioned above, naturalism is premised on taking science as our way of knowing about the world, not tradition, intuition, sacred texts or pronouncements. By illuminating the causal connections between phenomena, science inevitably unifies what it discovers into a single, natural, multifaceted whole. If we take science seriously with regard to ourselves and our behavior, we are led to the conclusion that human beings are fully included in the natural world, and that we are completely physical creatures. More and more, biology and neuroscience show that the brain and body do everything that the soul was supposed to do. Even consciousness and our higher level capacities for rationality and choice are fully embodied, causal processes. Some might conclude from this that naturalism reduces human beings to mere mechanisms, mere automatons, but this doesn't follow. What follows is that the physical universe has produced, in us, marvelously complex and adaptive organisms, with the capacity for self-reflection, wonder, suffering, and joy. Far from mechanizing humanity, naturalism re-enchants the physical world by showing how consciousness and choice don't involve supernatural processes. They are natural processes, understandable by science. Amazingly enough, physical existence produces all these intricate phenomena quite nicely on its own. By acknowledging our origins in evolution, the naturalist perspective also enhances our feeling of kinship with the other species with which we share this planet, and our desire to sustain and nurture the planet itself. All sentient beings, including humanity, owe their existence to conditions that extend far beyond us in space and time. Seeing this, we find ourselves completely at home in the universe, full-fledged participants in the unfolding natural order.
Nature is something that is beautiful (sometimes) and something you can't change. (unless you are pollution)

Answer It is a lifestyle choice which entails being naked whenever possible. My Answer Something I've been longing to do for a LONG time. I only do this at home and not even 2…4/7, either. Sigh. British Naturism's answer: Naturism, often called nudism, has as many definitions as there are naturists. It is both a Belief and a Way of Life. The International Naturist Federation, which represents millions of naturists around the world, including all members of British Naturism, describes it as: "A way of life in harmony with nature characterised by the practice of communal nudity, with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment." We also publish a set of beliefs: Naturists believe that nudity is an enjoyable, natural and moral state which brings benefits to themselves, and to society at large. Decency and shame •The human body in all its diversity is an object of intrinsic beauty of which the owner should be proud. •Simple nudity is not indecent, shameful, or immoral. Children •Bringing up children to respect their own and others' bodies improves their well-being and fosters more responsible sexual behaviour as they grow up. •Children have a right to know what humans really look like. Social division and respect •Naturism engenders self-respect and respect for others regardless of shape, age, gender, size, colour, or disability. •People should be accepted for who they are and not for what they wear. •Communal nudity discourages social barriers but clothing accentuates social differences. Clothing •Clothing can provide needed protection but often it is unnecessary and it can be harmful. •Naturism transcends fashion. •In a tolerant society what to wear is a matter of personal choice. •Governments should promote toleration and not impose unnecessary restrictions on freedom. Environment, nature, and quality of life •Naturism encourages respect for, and harmony with, the environment. •Naturism can add to the quality of life through the enjoyment of simplicity. •Naturism can reduce impact on the environment.
Nature may refer to the phenomena of the world, or life in general. It also is used as a synonym for the universe.
