Nature is what culture relates to, and culture is what the mind makes of the conditions in which it finds itself. Whether the concept of second nature opens up a more interesting way of thinking about the anthropological problem, that consists in the opposition between mind and nature, is examined in the following contribution, in the light of a debate that arose around John McDowell’s book Mind and World. The guiding thesis is that an ontology of mental being is needed to explain the mind’s peculiar way of referring to the absent in a present way.
