ABSTRACT

Descartes and the Cartesians suffered a series of condemnations aimed at several fundamental propositions of corpuscularianism and mechanism, such as the denial of substantial forms and real qualities. Also condemned was the theory of matter and place: extension as the principal attribute of matter, the indefinite extension of the world, and the impossibility of the void. With these objections, came an increased critique of hyperbolic doubt. The rejection of hyperbolic doubt caused Cartesians no longer to distinguish between the absolutely and the morally certain—between that which we cannot doubt and that about which we have no doubt although we could doubt it—and to treat all principles on a par with one another. As a result, Cartesians became more empirical and pursued aggressively a limited hypothetical-deductive method. For example, Huygens describes a hypothetico-deductive method that ends up with high probability, not absolute or moral certainty; in this, Huygens follows a path taken by closer followers of Descartes. This chapter will investigate such issues and their consequences for Cartesianism in the works of Cartesians such as Du Roure and Cordemoy. More... »
