Discussion of the nature and substance of matter.


Aristotelian Philosophy

Part 7

XI. Primary Matter

A. Five Propositions

1. Primary matter is a substratum common to all substances.

2. It cannot exist by itself, that is, without some form. Therefore it is a theoretical abstraction.

3. It has no distinguishable properties and is thus unknowable.

4. It is eternal; it can never be created or destroyed.

5. It is the ultimate basis of individuation; it is what ultimately sets apart different chairs, desks and people.

B. Historical Examples

1. Alchemy

2. Transubstantiation
