This book presents Islamic philosophy from within the Islamic tradition and on its own terms. The ideas of the Muslim philosophers based on the primary texts are analyzed, and then the arguments are structured, rather than just tracking their ideas in a traditional historical method.

John Locke's Philosophy of Science and Metaphysics
2007 0-7734-5468-3
Locke’s account of the problem of cohesion reflects a serious difficulty in his philosophy because of the way in which he relates it to the problem of substance in his search for something that not only underlies all properties in the traditional Aristotelian sense, but also holds the constituents of matter together. Contrary to common interpretation, this book argues that Locke did not have in mind a metaphysical entity which underlies qualities. Rather, he was more inclined to think that something like a cohesive power is what functions as the “bond” that hold holds together, not only the qualities of a substance, but its individual corpuscles, and on a deeper level even the parts of the corpuscle.
