    New York and London: McGraw-Hill Book Co. Aquinas, Thomas. () Aquinas on Matter and Form and the Elements: A translation and interpretation of the De principiis naturae and the De mixtione elementorum of St. Thomas Aquinas, Translated by Joseph Bobik. Notre Dame, Ind.: University of Notre Dame Press. ISBN Causality and the Metaphysics of Change in Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas. by Mario Derksen “All men by nature desire understanding.” [1] This is how Aristotle opens his famous Metaphysics, one of the greatest philosophical works ever thirst for knowledge has always occupied Western man at least since the time of Thales, and even though many different views and opinions.

      Preamble Aquinas introduces this question with a brief road-map that covers much of the rest of the first part of the ons are to be devoted to purely spiritual creatures (the so-called “Treatise on the Angels”), Questions to the purely corporeal elements of creation (the so-called “Treatise on the Six Days”), and Questions are devoted to those creatures. By calling matter and form 'principles,' Aquinas means that they are the primary co-constituents of a material thing. The word is obviously not being used in the sense of a logical principle; nor does it refer to observable chemical elements.

    Substantial form (the human soul) configures prime matter (the physical body) and is the form by which a material composite belongs to that species it does; in the case of human beings, that species is rational animal. So, a human being is a matter-form composite that is organized to be a rational animal. Thomas Aquinas believes the human soul is the form of the human being, which is a matter-form composite. For him, form is the “intrinsic constitutive element of the species in sensible entities.”6 Matter in general is the “stuff” of which creation is made. Prime matter is “the element of indetermination in corporeal beings.”.

Aquinas's resolution is that the elements remain with respect to power, not with respect to their forms. A complex body is a mixio in which the qualities of the elements affect and alter each other so as to remain virtually (that is, as retrievable powers) but not actually (without a corresponding substantial form).
