Montaigne (1533-1592) provides in his "Essays" a brilliant argument for naturism. It is located in "Book the First" and called "#35.On the custom of wearing clothes". He says;
"...I believe that as plants, trees, and animals, and all things that have life, are are seen to be by nature sufficiently clothed and covered, to defend them from the injuries of weather, so were we: but as those who by artificial light put out that of the day, so we borrowed forms and fashions and destroyed our own."
If you would like to read the entire section, please visit and sign the guestbook and I will happily email it to you.
Of course, I am aware that there are also many counter arguments against Naturism. If you disgaree with Montaigne and I, I would also be interested to hear from you.
