The Mechanical Hypothesis in Ancient Greek Natural Philosophy

Cambridge University Press (2009)
Abstract
In this 2009 book Sylvia Berryman challenges that assumption, arguing that the idea that the world works 'like a machine' can be found in ancient Greek thought, predating the early modern philosophy with which it is most closely associated.
