How should the idea of the aesthetic appreciation of nature be understood? The answer proposed is: as the aesthetic appreciation of nature as nature(more precisely, as what nature actually is). I elaborate this conception by elucidating the concept of nature (which covers both pristine nature and nature affected by humanity), by distinguishing different senses of a response to nature as nature, by presenting an account of what constitutes an aesthetic response to something, and by investigating the relevance of knowledge of nature, especially scientific knowledge, to nature's aesthetic appreciation.
