    Hysteria and Mechanical Man.John P. Wright - 1980 - Journal of the History of Ideas 41 (2):233.
    In this article I contrast 17th and 18th explanations of hysteria including those of Sydenham and Willis with those given by Plato and pre-modern medicine. I show that beginning in the second decade of the 17th century the locus of the disorder was transferred to the nervous system and it was no longer connected with the womb as in Hippocrates and Galen; hysteria became identified with hypochondria, and was a disease contracted by men as well as women. I discuss the (...)

    The Christian Virtuoso and the Reformers: Are There Reformation Roots to Boyle’s Natural Philosophy?Peter R. Anstey - 2000 - Lucas: An Evangelical History Review 27:1-20.
    The question of the extent to which a natural philosopher like Robert Boyle was influenced by the reformers has a great deal of intrinsic interest. That Boyle was a Protestant and was well versed in the current theological issues of his day is beyond dispute. But the central question to be explored in this paper is the extent to which he was influenced either directly by the reformers themselves or indirectly by Calvinist theology. This in turn has implications for the (...)

    Natural Philosophy, Deduction, and Geometry in the Hobbes-Boyle Debate.Marcus P. Adams - 2017 - Hobbes Studies 30 (1):83-107.
    This paper examines Hobbes’s criticisms of Robert Boyle’s air-pump experiments in light of Hobbes’s account in _De Corpore_ and _De Homine_ of the relationship of natural philosophy to geometry. I argue that Hobbes’s criticisms rely upon his understanding of what counts as “true physics.” Instead of seeing Hobbes as defending natural philosophy as “a causal enterprise … [that] as such, secured total and irrevocable assent,” 1 I argue that, in his disagreement with Boyle, Hobbes relied upon his understanding of natural (...)

    An Examination of Robert Boyle's Conception of Physical Causes.Neocles P. Serafimidis - 2004 - Dissertation, University of Washington
    In this dissertation I examine Robert Boyle's conception of physical causation and argue that Boyle holds a causal realist view that grounds what I call a moderate mechanism. I begin with a brief survey of the causal theories of three competing philosophical movements during Boyle's time, Aristotelianism, Renaissance naturalism, and mechanism. I then consider the question of the role of divine power in causal relations among created things. Views of God's role in physical causation include occasionalism, concurrentism, and deism. I (...)

    Os Limites Do Projeto Epistemológico de Robert Boyle: As Verdades Acima da Razão.Luciana Zaterka - 2002 - Cadernos de História E Filosofia da Ciência 12 (1/2).
    Em 1640, quando Robert Boyle tinha 13 anos de idade, ele passou por uma singular experiência religiosa que marcou toda a sua vida e propiciou a sua conversão. A partir dessa época, Boyle conduzirá sua vida no seio da prática cristã. Essa profunda religiosidade, piedade e humildade do pensador irá refletir em toda a sua obra. Dentro desta perspectiva, pretendemos analisar a influência dessa religiosidade e da teologia no seu empreendimento epistemológico. Aqui veremos que seu interesse pela filosofia natural tinha (...)

    The Aspiring Adept: Robert Boyle and His Alchemical Quest.Lawrence Michael Principe - 1996 - Dissertation, The Johns Hopkins University
    This dissertation deals with the alchemical activities of the English natural philosopher Robert Boyle . ;The study begins by setting down a consistent and defensible terminology for discussing a period during which time the words alchemy and chemistry were synonymous. A review of the three centuries of secondary literature on Boyle then reveals how his image has been successively reformed and tailored to fit prevailing apologetic or historiographic programmes, almost always with the effect of modernizing him and his interests and (...)

    Robert Boyle and the Limits of Reason: A Study in the Relationship Between Science and Religion in Seventeenth-Century England.Jan W. Wojcik - 1992 - Dissertation, University of Kentucky
    When Robert Boyle returned from his studies abroad in 1644, he found an England splintered into religious sects, each claiming to have attained a uniquely true understanding of the Christian religion. While trying to formulate an appropriate response to these various claims to truth, Boyle first expressed his views on the limits of human understanding. ;The members of one of these sects, the Socinians, claimed, specifically, that human reason is the criterion against which alternative and conflicting interpretations of disputed scriptural (...)

    This paper documents an important development in Robert Boyle's natural-philosophical method – his use from the 1660s onwards of ‘heads’ and ‘inquiries’ as a means of organizing his data, setting himself an agenda when studying a subject and soliciting information from others. Boyle acknowledged that he derived this approach from Francis Bacon, but he had not previously used it in his work, and the reason why it came to the fore when it did is not apparent from his printed and (...)

    It is hard to think of a better subject for the exercise of retrospective analysis with which we are here concerned than Robert Boyle, the leading British scientist of his day, and arguably the most significant before Newton. A prolific and influential author, Boyle was lionized in his time both for his scientific achievement and for his piety and philanthropy. Of late, he has been the subject of attention from a variety of viewpoints which, as we shall see, raises the (...)

Although this would have been a valuable exercise, and one that the British Society for the History of Science meeting partly engaged, the papers by Brett Kahr, John Clay and Karl Figlio published here raise some far more compelling issues which I shall explore (...)

Some of the information he divulged in these memoranda has become quite widely known because Burnet used it in the funeral sermon for Boyle that he delivered a month after his death, at St Martin's in the Fields on 7 January 1692. In addition, these notes were cited several (...)
