Example text

Again the confirmation of this is that mathematical things are ‘by abstraction but natural things are spoken of by addition’. For if matter and affections such as heat, coldness, heaviness, and lightness, and all resistances and changes are separated in thought from natural body, what remains is mathematical body; but if these things are added to mathematical body, the result is natural body, so that mathematical body is in natural body. 76 So Aristotle will show that those who hypothesise that the generation of bodies is of this sort are not able to preserve the affections of bodies apart from which it is impossible for there to be any natural body.

But there are many things which belong to natural bodies, but do not belong to points, and so80 bodies would not be composed from indivisibles; for if indivisible things do not have anything divisible, neither would what is composed from them. Consequently, using this argument, he could have proved universally from the universal that divisibility belongs to all affections of bodies that body is not composed from planes. And he does prove this using heaviness and lightness, which are particular affections, immediately hereafter.

17 10 15 20 Other people, such as Heraclitus, say that, other things come to be, but there is only one thing, the common substratum from which the others come to be, which does not come to be. And others say that there is no body which does not come to be, but they all come to be by being compounded from planes. He first discusses Melissus and Parmenides and their followers. 18 He says that, even if these people say other correct things (they really understood correctly and in a divine way the one being and intelligible nature, and they disclosed to their followers that there cannot be knowledge of things that come to be and change because they are always in flux), they ‘should not be considered to speak in a way appropriate to the study of nature’ since they philosophise about hypernatural things.
