Herschel, John Frederick William

Herschel answers an enquiry from Cranwick concerning his (Herschel's) published argument against 'the idea of an eternal self-existent matter'. He stresses that the core of his argument is against the 'independent self-existence' rather than the eternity of matter. Herschel amplifies this theme with an extended discussion of atomic theory.
