This chapter reviews the preceding discussions on space and place. Topics covered include the forcible re-entry of the void into philosophical and scientific discourse and its reinvigorated status in the two millennia after Aristotle’s death; the commitment to the unreducibility of natural or “proper” places in the cosmos; and the triumph of space over place.
