August 5, cilml 6: My main purpose in Chapter 1 has been to show that Aristotle’s uses of his new term entelekheia to define both motion and the soul are opaque and appear at first or even second glance to be inconsistent, and that they therefore invited energetic nafx along the lines I cilm described.


Includes bibliographical references p. In particular, the Neoplatonists had divided Aristotle’s four causes – the efficient, the final, the formal and the material – into causes which are separate from or transcend their effects, and causes which are inseparable from or immanent in their effects. Leave this field empty.

I can use teleiotes to refer to the end-state possessed by a changed thing, to the state of someone who is knowledgeable but is not actively contemplating, and to the state of someone who is actively contemplating. Because Avicenna often uses the term shay,iyya, “thingness”, for essence in many of his discussions of how the final and efficient causes operate in tandem with each other, I try to explain what he meant by that strange term.

This suggests that Avicenna’s cosmology is best understood as being structured along Neoplatonic lines of procession and reversion.

What is Alexander’s rationale for elevating teleiotes over teleiosis? What is different about Aristotle’s nominal use of entelekheia in L2 to define change and his nominal use of entelekheia in L1 to define the soul? When I am not contemplating – when, that is, I am in a state of first perfection – the relation between me and the object of thought is absent. Another obstacle to this type of research is that most of these mystical com- mentaries lack good critical editions, which makes them even more difficult to use.


Political analysts have suggested that the agreement may have been a bid on President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed’s part to fend off attempts by the National Speaker of Parliament Filmi Sharif Hassan to force him from power by preemptively “sacrificing” the Premier.
