L'A. analyse la theorie de la matiere des critiques anglais de Descartes (More, Boyle, Mayow, Newton), et leurs theories des forces occultes et " principes actifs ". Il soutient que ces qualites occultes ne sont pas les restes d'une pensee " hermetique " mais des elaborations theoriques de la pensee mecaniste et des elements originaux de la pensee experimentale anglaise
