This chapter analyses quantum conceptions of motion from a kinematic perspective. The examination of quantum-motion begins in the first section by considering Aristotle's view on the relations between kinds of quantum. The second section explores the cinematographic conception of motion. According to this model, an object occupies a fixed position for some lapse or duration of time; but at the posterior limit of such an interval, it finds itself displaced by a minimal unit of distance in the direction of its motion. The third section considers the Epicurean quantum-motion at micro-level. The fourth section explores the Epicurean conception of speed at micro-level and macro-level.
