The significance of his work, however, reaches far beyond the Russian context. Cartesianism was highly controversial. Voetius, a professor of theology at Utrecht, challenged Regius’s doctrine that the union of soul and body is one of two separate substances, defending the scholastic- Aristotelian doctrine that the soul is the substantial form of the body.

To play such a game is irrational; thus, one should conform one’s subjective probabilities to the probability calculus. To take again an admittedly oversimplified example, consider color vision.

Immanuel Kant’s categorical imperative should be replaced by the “energetic imperative”: “Do not waste your energy.” Ostwald’s applications of his energetic imperative to social thought were even more ambiguous than his views on the mind-body problem. In the third tractate he discusses the meaning of philosophy, which he finds to signify “love of and zeal for wisdom,” adding that philosophy has “as its subject understanding and as its form an almost divine love of the thing understood.” Presumably “understanding” can be applied to the various fields of study Dante had enumerated in the second tractate, composing an ingenious correlation between the sciences and the heavens of the Ptolemaic system.
