Sample text

Circumstances must also be taken into account. Merely as a moral philosopher he may seem to add little to the eudemonianism and the typology of the virtues set forth in Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics on which he wrote a commentary. Here he was but on the threshold of his heroic ideal of theological perfection, which makes his criticism of the stoic standard of passionless virtue all the more impressive. Aquinas’ synthesis on the nature and divisions of Law dominates his social philosophy. Law is rational ordinance, not directly a manifestation of might; it is for the common good, and this means a communion of persons; in the human community it comes from the ruler who is the representative, not the owner of the people; and it must be promulgated.

There he died in 322. Aristotle’s early writings were mostly intended for a general public. Written in a polished style (some in dialogue form), they were largely Platonic in outlook. These works were well known in antiquity but only fragments survive. The works which we possess are systematic treatises intended for serious students. ; our text of Aristotle is based ultimately on Andronicus’ edition, and so were all translations into Latin and Arabic. Aristotle’s treatises have a rather peculiar character, for they are in essence notes 32 THE CONCISE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF WESTERN PHILOSOPHY AND PHILOSOPHERS of or notes for lectures.

II. FORM AND MATTER A table is wood and glue put together in a certain way. Aristotle distinguishes as separate aspects of the table its matter (the wood and glue) and its form (how it is put together, its structure). Many of his central ideas—and of his puzzles—are connected with this distinction. (a) Form is immanent: the form of table exists only as the form of this table or that table, that is, as the form of certain matter. There is no separately existing transcendental Platonic Form of Table (or indeed of Man or Justice).
