|Title:||An Examination of Aristotle's Concept of Matter in the Context of Change|
|Authors:||Bot , Horatio Ion|
|Abstract:||<p>The concept of matter is discussed by Aristotle in the context of investigations dealing with the issues of causality, substance, and change. The following inquiry focusses (sic) on the discussion of matter in the context of change by analysing the two accounts of change that Aristotle gives in the first book of the Physics and the ninth book of the Metaphysics, respectively. The two schemas of change are outlined and the development of the concept of matter is followed from the hypokeimenon of accidental change, to the primary matter of elemental change, to the matter that underlies substantial change and finally to the potential of the second model of change. </p>|
