He naturalism is a philosophical system that highlights the nature As the first principle of reality. The naturalist current maintains that nature is formed by the all existing physical realities and therefore it is the unique and absolute origin of the real .
For philosophical naturalism, everything real is natural and vice versa ; there is no possible reality outside the limits of nature. Likewise, it should be noted that it denies the nature-spirit duality, since the latter is considered as a special form of the former, and reducible to it.

Beyond the philosophy , naturalism is a artistic and aesthetic movement which is responsible for reproducing the creations of nature. It was particularly important in the literature of the XIX century , from the monitoring of experimental science methods. French journalist and writer Émile Zola (1840 -1902 ) is considered as the greatest and theoretical exponent of naturalism.
Among the main characteristics of artistic naturalism, is the preponderance of the physiology in the behavior of the characters, social denunciation, anticlericalism, positivist determinism (the characters are determined by genetics and the environment), pessimism and tremendismo.
Naturalism also usually presents the eroticism as a social disease, related to prostitution and pornography. Sex, therefore, is not linked to pleasure or love, but to vice and decay.
