This chapter explores the implications of Averroes’ firm commitment to empiricism and his conviction that an empirically based science can achieve proper demonstrative certitude, in opposition to Ashʿarite voluntarism, which makes all natural events dependent on the untrammeled will of God. Against this Averroes wants to show that through sense-experience we are able to grasp the powers of natural causes, powers that are possessed and yield their effects necessarily, as demanded in demonstrative science.

Loin d’être simplement écarté par principe, loin même d’être un thème marginal ou une difficulté à éviter, le vide est tout au long du Moyen Âge l’objet de nombreuses analyses. Les contributions rassemblées dans cet ouvrage examinent quelques-uns des principaux développements qui prennent le vide comme objet ou comme moyen, dans le monde arabe comme dans le monde médiéval latin. Ils traitent du vide en dehors du monde comme du vide à l’intérieur du monde, des différentes définitions du vide, de son rapport au lieu ou bien au mouvement. Ils concernent la physique ou la cosmologie, mais aussi la biologie. Nous avons souhaité dédier ces études à Edward Grant qui, le premier, a mis en lumière l’étendue des problèmes scientifiques traités par les Médiévaux à l’aide du concept de vide.
