BIBLIOGRAPHY

Francisco Suárez's influential Disputationes metaphysicae
(1597) contains an extended presentation and discussion of
the scholastic doctrine of fourfold causation. See Disputa-
tions XII-XXXIII, in Vol. II, 323ff., and Vol. III of the recent
Latin and Spanish edition (Madrid, 1960-64). The interest-
ing and revealing controversy between Descartes and More
is to be found in Vol. VIII, 90-107, 121-39, 154-85, 204-17,
240-52, and 261-67 of Descartes: Correspondance, edited
by Charles Adam and Gérard Milhaud (Paris, 1963). New-
ton's anti-Cartesian tract “De gravitatione et aequipondio
fluidorum” was published by A. Rupert Hall and Marie Boas
Hall in Unpublished Scientific Papers of Isaac Newton (Cam-
bridge, 1962), pp. 89ff. The following books and articles,
representing a very small part of the literature, have been
particularly useful: Yvon Belaval, Leibniz, critique de Des-
cartes

ophique de la France et de l'étranger,

internationale de philosophie,

Gilson, “De la Critique des formes substantielles au doute
méthodique,” Études sur le rôle de la pensée médiévale dans
la formation du système cartésien
(Paris, 1951), pp. 141-90;
Marie Boas Hall, Robert Boyle on Natural Philosophy
(Bloomington, 1965); Peter Hoenen, Cosmologia (Rome,
1949); Max Jammer, Concepts of Force (Cambridge, Mass.,
1957); Alexandre Koyré, “Galilée et la loi d'inertie,” Études
galiléennes,

cartes,” Newtonian Studies (London, 1965), pp. 53-200;

dence and the Mechanical Philosophy,” Journal of the His-
tory of Ideas,

ment de la physique cartésienne, 1646-1712
(Paris, 1934);
