In a curious way we ourselves are, as it were, the watershed that divides the all-comprehensive domain of the familiar into that which belongs to nature and that which is the product of human artfulness. This division was not invented by, say Aristotle, but is itself…a natural division. Here again, nature connotes a horizontal relationship. The horizon within which events in nature are viewed…is the workmanship of human artisans, who, in turn, find the model for their proceedings and for the knowledge thereof—the model for their tekhne—in the workings of nature, the artist.
