Intro to Naturalism

Here is what will happen in this sequence: I will pick out the concepts that seem central to my understanding of naturalism; I will name them with words; and I will do my best to tell you what I mean by those words. My only goal in this sequence is to communicate what I mean by the sentence, “Knowing the territory takes patient and direct observation.”
