Subject: Re: Momentum and other physical metaphors in history

On Forbes and polarity, there's Phillip Rehbock's _The
Philosophical Naturalists_.  Also discusses Owen's use of
'polarity,' as I recall.  Those uses of polarity did not strike me
as closely related to physical (e.g. magnetic) polarity -- at
least at the shallow depth at which I understood them.
