The phenomenon of quadratic electrostriction in isotropic dielectrics is studied using standard concepts of dielectric theory. The method employed is an extension of the derivation of the Clausius-Mosotti relation to the strain-dependent case. Formulae for the two tensor components that exist in the isotropic case are given in terms of material constants.
