Teuton wrote:
DrWho wrote:Naturalism does not seem to have a commonly accepted precise definition: ..

In the academic literature we find distinctions between metaphysical/ontological n., epistemological n., and methodological n..
It's metaphysical/ontological naturalism that is relevant to the question of the relationship between materialism and naturalism.

By the way, what I really don't like is that quite a few philosophers use "naturalism" as a euphemism for "scientism".

My point is that there is no universally accepted definition of naturalism.
