Origin of natural science:
the sciences involved in the study of the physical world and its phenomena
A science involved in studying phenomena or laws of the physical world; a general term of physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy, and so on.
The natural sciences are those branches of science that seek to elucidate the rules that govern the natural world through scientific methods. The term "natural science" is used to distinguish the subject from the social sciences, which apply the scientific method to study human behavior and social patterns; the humanities, which use a critical or analytical approach to study the human condition; and the formal sciences such as mathematics and logic, which use an a priori, as opposed to factual methodology to study formal systems.
