    Bitches get wet when I distinguish primary substances from secondary and stipulate said of subject ualities from both in subject and contingent properties from the former

    I'm slowly becoming to think in Aristotelian terms to the point my mom said she has no idea what I'm talking about on few occasions

    Fairly solid book I really enjoy this one as a companion to understanding Metaphysics A lot of the same distinctions he goes over here he would have gone over there I do like it a fair amount and I think it is ingeniously detailed This goes along with almost anything you’re reading in addition linguistics mathematics anything Just like Metaphysics Perfect book

    Perfect for academics who make much ado about absolutely nothing After you get through the sentiments Wow this guy had too much time on his hands and How does one pay the bills with no real skillset? the treatise is uite an interesting assessment on the philosophy of word structure What's astonishing is that Aristotle's inuiry concerns ancient Greek but is completely applicable to modern English Unsure if his conclusions about the human mind hold true viz Sanskrit a future paper for someone

    a superb even if somewhat hapazardly organized treatise on some of the fundamental terms that we take for granted in his discussion of uantity he makes a strange claim about parts of time not enduring that I don't find convincing if parts of time do not endure then how can we account for prior and posterior the flow of time the whole treatise is like a puzzle that must be pieced together with effort

    Categories is the intro text to Aristotle’s Metaphysics or so some essay from PlatoStanfordEdu said Good enough for me It is short and clear Some things are predicable of a subject but never in a subject By “being present in a subject” Aristotle means “incapable of existence apart from a subject” 2 1aSubstance is that which is neither predicable of a subject nor present in a subject Primary The individual man or horseSecondary the species man; the genus animalKey point everything except primary substances is either predicable of a primary substance or present in a primary substance The proposition “the man is an animal” is necessarily true but not the reverse Further the species is to the genus as subject is to predicateA primary substance has no contrary for what can be the contrary to an individual man? Yet while remaining numerically one it can admit contrary ualities

    It's a pretty fascinating read I utterly disagree with the author's conclusions but it's uite obvious that many people adhere to these categories without even realizing it

    Impressive analysis But today we might ask Are there secure metaphysical categories? Aren't categories part of languages validated by usescience?

    Notes on Katēgoriai1 This was my introduction to the work of Aristóteles and oh my was it a struggle Despite being a relatively short text it has enough concepts and references and allusions to keep you untangling them for years Reading the Katēgoriai is an act of intellectual weightlifting that I'm not so sure is as rewarding as I'd like it to be I'm still trying to wrap my head around what it means and how it stands among the Aristotelian opus2 For starters the Katēgoriai is not about categories in the modern sense of the word but about being After long chapters that I don't think I can explain properly Aristóteles introduces the ways of being of objects He classifies what can be said about them and how they can be classified as primary and secondary entities My translation uses the concept of entity instead of the English substance A lot of what Aristóteles says seems somewhat obvious; a lot seems baffling3 I don't think this is the best place to start with Aristóteles I don't recommend it Its dry difficult style and its complex use of language will put readers off if they're not familiar with the core concepts of the Aristotelian oeuvre and the subject matter is not particularly appealing I'm told Katēgoriai as part of the Organon is thought to be a useful tool to navigate the rest of Aristóteles' works Perhaps it is My copy had numerous footnotes linking the concept found here to his Physics Metaphysics and others Perhaps as I read my way through Aristóteles' work this will make sense At least I hope so

    Aristotle starts his analysis of logic by analysing language How insightful and remarkable as well that so much of what he uncovers applicable to Greek is applicable to modern English Aristotle immediately goes into a long list of distinctions There is neither a motivating statement nor any outline of his scheme This approach may confuse some people but it occurs to me that carefully crafted distinctions often lead to the effortless emergence of later truths The name Organon applies; the focus is on Logic as a tool Aristotle would have felt very much at home with set theory and object oriented programming Often he seems on the verge of inventing these domainsAristotle's ideas continue to have a large influence on how we see things in science For instance it is an Aristotelian notion that leads us after Einstein to speak of mass and time as relative
