Een voorloper van Kant
Space is not among worldly things (...) - it is prior to them all. As all things come to be in it, so are they accidental to it; so that not only what are listed in the categories (van Aristoteles; WD) as accidents, but also what is there called substance, are for it accidents. Hence it must be philosophized (em>philosophandum_) about in a different way from the categories.
