Synopsis: A substantial and in-depth study of the history of the atomic theory of matter between the time of Democritus and that of Newton. It is the first to emphasize the continuity of the atomic debate and the debt owed by the seventeenth-century "moderns" to the medieval critique of Aristotle.

Review: "Andrew Pyle's book provides both a scientific and a philosophical perspective the most comprehensive history of atomism available. He teases out the arguments, for and against, that dominated discussion of the theory from the Ancient World to the age of Newton and in so doing provides an unrivalled survey of the issues which the theory raises." G. A. J. Rogers -- G.A.J. Rogers

"Pyle's story, from Classical Antiquity through the Middle Ages and Renaissance up to the seventeenth century is beautifully and clearly organised . . . the book is a mine of information and a model of clarity." -- Alan Chalmers

"[A] valuable source book for specialist and non-specialist alike . . . an invaluable study." -- John Yolton
