Précis Paper. Nature is a short essay by Ralph Waldo Emerson. The essay advances transcendentalist views that there is an intricate relationship between nature and man. In Emerson philosophy, there is a fundamental continuity that exists between man, nature, and God. What is beyond nature is revealed through nature – nature is itself a symbol, or an indication of a deeper reality. There is no conflict between spirit and matter but they both exist in a critical unity of experience. Précis Paper.
