Nature and Time

Culturally i have grown to understand "nature" as the "great outdoors", is this what Grosz is referring to when she refrences "nature"?

Nature does provoke cultural evolution; however can culture generate evolution in "nature" ? Nature's wrath and passivity: storms, famine, droughts, sun, rain, animals, do cause change, here i agree with Grosz, but what about human intervention, pollution, farming, cloning, and building? I would like to borrow Micheal Pollan's thoughts and believe that nature may be evolving more than we think.

Because i care about the world and its state Grosz's questions should be considered. Most importantly her question regarding nature and its framework regarding cultural evolution. How important is it that we not separate the two?

thanks
