Chapter Summary

This chapter deals about ghosts and apparitions. A spirit is bodiless and does not take up space because it is bodiless, and what is bodiless cannot show it before our bodily eyes. A spirit, therefore, as something bodiless, cannot show itself before our bodily eyes. We say the same about the ghosts and apparitions of the spirits of people who have died, which we also reject. A spirit does not occupy space by way of circumscription but by way of delimitation, as the theologians might say in order to provide at least some proof, with which they think they have uncovered a major distinction which has clarified the matter.
