Spinoza on the Resistance of Bodies

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
People attribute resistance to bodies in Spinoza's physics. It's not always clear what they mean when they do this, or whether they are entitled to. This article clarifies what it would mean, and examines the evidence for attributing resistance. The verdict: there's some evidence, but not nearly as much as people think.
