Published by: Cornell University Press. Philosophical developments in the mid-seventeenth century were making that removal increasingly difficult. To make good on a program to remove necessity from will, one had to leave the confines of theology and engage the discourse of natural philosophy. This observation, necessary in an era of specialization, would not have surprised Milton. Several influential voices in seventeenth-century England proposed a principle of life neither incorporeal nor mechanical, and it is among these thinkers that Milton takes his place.

While Johnson charged that Milton "unhappily perplexed his poetry with his philosophy," Stephen M. Fallon argues that the relationship between Milton's philosophy and the poetry of Paradise Lost is a happy one. The author examines Milton's thought in light of the competing philosophical systems that filled the vacuum left by the repudiation of Aristotle in the seventeenth century. In what has become the classic account of Milton's animist materialism, Fallon revises our understanding of Milton's philosophical sophistication. The book offers a new interpretation of the War in Heaven in Paradise Lost as a clash of metaphysical systems, with free will hanging in the balance.
