A Scholastic Mechanism
In sharp contrast to Malebranche, Pierre‐Sylvain Régis tries to reconcile Descartes's ontology with scholastic concurrentism. Rather than embrace occasionalism, Régis attempts to hold onto the notion that bodies have genuine powers by reducing these powers to the intrinsic qualities of bodies. Even though God is the ultimate source of motion, how that motion is directed depends directly on created beings and not on the divine will.
