Quotes | On

The following are quotes on Boyle:

Newton and Boyle lived and worked happily under the influence of this [prime mover] conception; Goethe rejected it with vehemence, and the same repugnance to accepting it is manifest in Carlyle. Boyle’s model of the universe was a Strasburg clock with an outside artificer. Goethe, on the other hand, sang: ‘It befits him to move the world within, to cherish nature in itself, in nature’ (‘ihm ziemt's die welt im innern zu bewegen, natur in sich, sich in natur zu hegen’). Carlyle’s views are expressed in his 1843 Past and Present (§5)[1].”
John Tyndall (1873), “Atheistic Materialism”, BAAS Address (pg. 24)[2]
