The book surveys the key metaphysical contributions of the Cambridge Platonist, Henry More (1614-1687). It deals with such interwoven topics as: the natures of body and spirit, and the question of whether or not there is a sharp ontological division between them; the nature of spatial extension in relation to each; the composition and governance of the physical world, including More's theories of Hyle, atoms, vacuum, and the Spirit of Nature; and the life of the human soul, including its pre-existence.

Produktbeschreibung
The book surveys the key metaphysical contributions of the Cambridge Platonist, Henry More (1614-1687). It deals with such interwoven topics as: the natures of body and spirit, and the question of whether or not there is a sharp ontological division between them; the nature of spatial extension in relation to each; the composition and governance of the physical world, including More's theories of Hyle, atoms, vacuum, and the Spirit of Nature; and the life of the human soul, including its pre-existence. It approaches these topics and the systematic connections between them both historically and analytically, and seeks to do justice to the ways in which More's system developed and changed-sometimes quite dramatically-over the course of his long career. It also explores More's intellectual relations with both his own inspirations (Plotinus, Origen, Ficino, Descartes, etc.) and with those who responded, whether positively or negatively, to his work (Leibniz, Locke, Boyle, Newton, etc.).

Jasper Reid studied philosophy at Cambridge and Princeton, and is now a lecturer in philosophy at King's College London. His main area of research is in the history of philosophy of the early modern period, particularly on the metaphysical and epistemological side. He has written on a number of figures from that period, including Henry More, Descartes, Malebranche, Berkeley and Jonathan Edwards; and on a number of themes, including space, immaterialism, and early modern philosophy of mathematics.

Rezensionen
"Reid's book is the first comprehensive study of Henry More as a metaphysician, attentive to the broad picture as well as to fine details. As such, it is to be saluted as a great achievement in the field of the history of early modern philosophy ... . Reid has also performed a great service to readers, for his book is written in a clear and compelling style ... ." (Guido Giglioni, Journal of the History of Philosophy, Vol. 54 (3), July, 2016)
