Phisica : scripta sub admodum R. P. Cambos philosophiae professore doctore agregato in Collegio Squillano Tolosano anno Domini 1751 [manuscript] / a Jacobo Josephoque Dartiguelongue Narbonensi convietore in eodem collegio.
Abstract:
A work on natural philosophy, mixing contemporary science (Descartes, Gassendi) with traditional philosophy (Aristotle, Malebranche). The author, unlike Descartes, maintains the distinction between form and matter; he also follows scientific discoveries such as that objects of different masses fall at the same rate. Other topics include the infinite divisibility of matter and the possibility of a true vacuum. Manuscript appears to be part of a series, with alternate titles Pars secunda philosophiae seu phisica (f. 7r) and Prima pars phisicae generalis (f. 115r).
