This chapter takes up secondary qualities: color, sound, etc., and considers how post‐scholastic views differ from those of the scholastics. An attempt is made to understand why seventeenth‐century authors so often seem to equivocate over whether colors etc. are in the world or in the mind.

Keywords:   color, secondary qualities, Galileo, Hobbes, Descartes
