Abstract

Understanding the freedom in Cavendish’s natural philosophy is essential to understanding Cavendish’s work as a whole. In this paper, I will examine three different ways in which freedom can be understood and argue that Cavendish is best understood as a libertarian. From this conclusion, I will argue that consequently, the God in Cavendish’s model must be deistic as opposed to providential. Finally, I will summarize and commentate on an article written by Karen Detlefsen.
