This course seeks to indicate the perennial notions of Philosophy of Nature and its compatibility with experimental sciences. Emphasis is given to a study of the accidents of which we study chiefly quantity and quality but also space, time, action and passion. Lastly, it will examine various contemporary philosophies of nature.
