Example text

How does this avoid the problem of a lack of autonomy? In the previous example the water’s qualities were completely irrelevant; the heat in the water is explained entirely by the heat in the fire atoms.

For how else can we explain that clay, which being insentient is not capable of producing an ef­ fect on its own, is capable of producing a pot when a potter comes into the equation?
