- "These articles provide a philosophical analysis of the relation between various docrines of God and their respective philosophies of nature. [Foster] specifically connects the voluntaristic doctrine of God with early modern natural philosophy (Empiricism)...his articles are the basis of some later works which do apply his analysis to seventeenth-century England."
