Abstract

Aristotle defines Empty Space as “a Place which is not filled by a body but which is capable of being filled.” He does not admit of the existence of a Vacuum in nature and argues against it in this way:
  • “A philosopher should not posit the existence of that in nature which is not the cause of any effect.”

  • “A Vacuum is not the cause of any effect in nature.”

  • “Therefore the existence of a vacuum should not be posited in nature.”
