Abstract

This paper examines the distinct nature of Newtonian inductivism and its connection to methodological atomism. According to this interpretation, Newton's Rule III for the Study of Natural Philosophy is a criterion for isolating the primary qualities of the atomic parts. The universal nature of such qualities also raises the laws describing these qualities to the status of laws of nature.
