Duhem I 12
Atomism/CartesiansVsAtomism/Duhem: Atomism considers phenomena as realities. According to Descartes, matter is identical with the extension in length, depth and width. Nothing but different shapes and different movements must be considered. Matter is incompressible and absolutely homogeneous. Empty space and atoms are illusions.
