Substantial Holism

Abstract / Description of output

Substances are the most unified wholes in Aristotle's metaphysics, being paradigmatically single but complex entities. My concern in this paper is to understand the nature of their unity, and through it, explicate an important aspect of the relation of the potential to the actual, which is fundamental in Aristotle's system.
