Razak, Mohd Abbas Abdul; Haneef, Sayed Sikandar Shah; Mustapha, Maziah Bte – Dinamika Ilmu, 2018
Even though the evolution of time and scientific knowledge have provided humanity with the latest understanding on the concept of man, nevertheless man is too complicated to be comprehended in his entirety through any single study carried out on him.

The concept of "connectedness with nature" is increasingly used in environmental and sustainability discourse.

Quay, John – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017

Dweck, Carol S. – American Psychologist, 2012
Debates about human nature often revolve around what is built in. However, the hallmark of human nature is how much of a person's identity is not built in; rather, it is humans' great capacity to adapt, change, and grow. This nature versus nurture debate matters--not only to students of human nature--but to everyone. It matters whether people…
