    Special Issue on Philosophy of Nature


    Philosophy of nature is the foundation of modern natural science. Its fundamental significance is to reveal the principle of nature or to find the principle through nature. With the new progress of science, contemporary natural philosophy has a trend of revival, showing the way of scientific philosophy and metaphysical speculation. The former explores new natural principle based on scientific achievements, reflects on natural theories and integrates natural scenes. The latter transcends the limitations of science by philosophical speculation and reveals the universal significance of nature.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring philosophy of nature. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • The relationship between man and nature
    • Science and nature
    • Cosmic order and principle
    • Cognitive science and human experience
    • Phenomenology of spirit
    • Mechanical theory and nature
    • Ethics and morality

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Philosophy of Nature” should be chosen during your submission.
