Vote for Boyle.

Geary says that there is a nice ring to Corpuscularianism, "even of the
logical type."

In a message dated 9/4/2015 3 McEvoy writes about founding Logical
Corpuscularianism and having as organ:

"The Corpusclar Review" (incorporating "Logical Entities Monthly" and
"Divisibility [Bi-]Weekly")

but was granting about not having _that_ ring.

Perhaps 'logical corpuscularism' should get more adherents (or 'followers',
as Geary prefers: "you can adhere without follow, and vice versa").

This below is the first Google page for 'corpuscularism': preface it with
'logical' and presto, you get McEvoy's coinage.
