Matter and Space
Discusses what Descartes wanted and how he defended his thesis that materiality equals extension. It tells us why he thought there is no vacuum and how Locke opposed him on this. It discusses the concept of solidity and gives four views of space: vacuum as a bulky nothing, space as a container, a system of relations, a separator. He concludes the chapter with Descartes's account of motion.
