“Natural philosophy is the genius that has regulated my fate…” (pg. 24)
Natural philosophy is the study of Earthly (of alien/extra planetary) things and how or why they work the way they do. Types of natural study and philosophy include what is now what is referred to simply as science. Natural philosophy includes the study of natural things from a grand scale (things such as Cosmology or Astronomy), the study of natural things on a very small scale, the study of elements, and the study of physical qualities to mention a few. Sir Isaac Newton named his famous book Mathematical Principles of Philosophy and has widely been regarded as one of the greatest natural philosophers (or scientists).
