This book is devoted to the study of the meaning of matter in the works of the Greek scholars of the 18th -19th century. Yannis Karas, a pronounced historian of Greek science, succeeds in giving a complete and detailed picture of the ideas and theories concerning matter expressed during the eve of the scientific thought in the Modern Greek culture. Some of the theories proposed or adopted by the Greek scholars seem to be quite realistic and in accordance with modern beliefs concerning the role of matter and void in the nature.
