The aim of this article is to reveal the difficulties of defending a conception of nature independent of the conceptions of human being and human nature in current ethical discussions. Given that every question about human being is related to what human nature (internal nature) is and consequently to what nature itself (external nature) is, in this article the character of the close relationship between human being and nature will be demonstrated. Within this framework, it will be proper, first to present a conceptual analysis of the terms human being and nature, then to introduce different perspectives on human being in different historical periods and to discuss conceptions of human being belonging to philosophical anthropology, especially through Kant and Scheler. It is plain that the hint to the ethical ground of the human-nature relation can be discerned only in this way.
