Fetal heart development in the nitrofen-induced CDH rat model: the role of mechanical and nonmechanical factors.
A complex "cocktail of ideas" and practices are adduced by Vermij: (1) invoking universal gravitation (nonmechanical forces) meant mechanical principles could not explain everything (a direct appeal to Newton's 2nd edition of the Principia and particularly Roger Cotes's preface to this edition); (2) an argument from design and the rise of physico-theology; (3) a long tradition of experimental philosophy which challenged Cartesian speculation and Spinoza's thorough geometrical way of reasoning; and (4) an element of theological voluntarism.
