Preview

The question of possible interaction between a soul and its body was not so easily resolved, but, especially at a time in France when occasionalism was once again in the ascendancy, physical influence of body on soul, or intentional action of soul on body, was not the favoured hypothesis or system. This chapter examines a number of lesser-known writers, both traditional and radical, whose works provide a larger sense of the context in which Locke's doctrines were placed in France.

Keywords: Locke; Hume; philosophy; Condillac; Schosler; Malebranche; body; soul
