  Online Encyclopedia and Dictionary - Natural science
Thus the traditional description of natural science is the study of nature: the physical, nonhuman aspects of the earth and the cosmos.
Together, the natural and applied sciences are distinguished from the social sciences on the one hand, and from the humanities, theology and the arts on the other.
In this sense "natural sciences" can be an alternative phrase for biological sciences, involved in biological processes, or perhaps also the earth sciences, as might distinguished from the physical sciences (more directly involved in the study of physical and chemical laws underlying the universe).

 Science - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Natural science was gradually specialized to its current domain, which typically includes the physical sciences and the biological sciences.
Science is not a source of subjective value judgements, though it can certainly speak to matters of ethics and public policy by pointing to the likely consequences of actions.
Science is practiced in universities and other scientific institutes as well as in the field; as such it is a solid vocation in academia, but is also practiced by amateurs, who typically engage in the observational part of science.

 Science and World View
However, there are questions that science cannot answer: questions of ultimate origins, of meaning and purpose, of morality, of what it means to be human.
Prior to the rise of modern science during the Renaissance (see second paragraph of introduction) and the Reformation, most ancient world views were a hindrance to scientific progress.
Science needed a revolution, a reformation not only of the church, but of men and their ideas, before it could grow.

 Undergraduate courses: Natural Sciences
The Natural Sciences Tripos offers both physical and biological scientists a unique and demanding course that combines a broad first year with increasing specialisation in the second year and total specialisation in the third and, in some disciplines, fourth years.
The breadth of the Natural Sciences Tripos reflects the blurring of boundaries between the different sciences: biological problems are increasingly being solved using techniques which require an understanding of physics and chemistry, whilst many of the most pressing problems being addressed by chemists and materials scientists require a knowledge of biology.
When you enter Cambridge as a Natural Scientist you may think of yourself as broadly a ‘biological’ or ‘physical’ scientist, but you will not be labelled as a zoologist or a physicist (say), before you have studied a variety of subjects, some of which may be completely new to you.

 First Edition (1875) Science and Health - Chapter 1: Natural Science
Natural history presents the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms preserving their original species in reproduction; a mineral is not produced by a vegetable, and vice versa; throughout the entire round of universal nature, this rule relating to genus and species holds good; this therefore is science.
Science puts not new wine into old bottles; we cannot adhere to a belief regarding a subject, and at the same time grasp the Truth of it; we must yield the old, or the new is spilled.
Science lays the axe at the root of error and cutting down the belief of Life in matter, of Soul in body, and God in man, exchanges fable for fact, turns thought into new channels away from personality to Principle, through which alone man is able to reach Life.

 Amazon.com: Nature, Design, and Science: The Status of Design in Natural Science (Suny Series in Philosophy and ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
Scientists and philosophers of science generally share an assumption from the most common interpretation of the influence of teh likes of Aristotle, Hume, and Darwin, and most interpretations of the history of science and technology.
The place where I had to differ was that, consistent with methodological naturalism, it seems to me that we already tried the "design" model in the 19th century, and have since then discovered some insights that went way beyond it and have proven far more fruitful.
Building a more fruitful design model of nature from knowledge gleaned from Darwinian science is a wonderful paradox to consider, but quite honestly I don't think most people who want to see nature as "designed" are going to be this flexible in their thinking.
