  1. The Making of Robert Boyle' s Free Enquiry into the Vulgarly Receiv'd Notion of Nature.Michael Hunter & Edward B. Davis - 1996 - Early Science and Medicine 1 (2):204-268.
    This study throws new light on the composition of Boyle's Free Enquiry into the Vulgarly Receiv'd Notion of Nature ; it also draws more general conclusions about Boyle's methods as an author and his links with his context. Its basis is a careful study of the extant manuscript drafts for the work, and their relationship with the published editions. Section 2 describes Boyle's characteristic method of composition from the late 1650s onwards, involving the dictation of discrete sections of text to (...)

  4. Robert Boyle: A Free Enquiry Into the Vulgarly Received Notion of Nature.Edward B. Davis & Michael Hunter (eds.) - 1996 - Cambridge University Press.
    In this book, published in 1686, the scientist Robert Boyle attacked prevailing notions of the natural world which depicted 'Nature' as a wise, benevolent and purposeful being.
