Theory and method on the 3rd book of Aristotle's physics
Summary:
The present work discusses Aristotle's attempt to explore the space-time dimension at a time when the positive sciences were beginning to evolve. In his work "The Physics" he analyzes the relations of time with space and emptiness in the cosmic universe. Time is defined as change and motion as its result, with the consequence that space occurs and, eventually, emptiness as points of change of time. Every body has a point of birth and death, so it moves uninterruptedly in the universe and is characterized by continuity, raising the question of infinity as a quantity by addition and division. Nevertheless, infinity, in order to be understood, needs to be intertwined with the types of movement, the quality, the quantity and the on the spot movement, which clarify as thoroughly as possible the meaning of space that for centuries was an unexplored field of research. Therefore, space creates the abilities of thought, sensation and intellect as prerequisites of motion, in order to enable a body to reach the end that it has been created for. However, its fulfillment cannot be implemented without entelechy, as long as this is continuous, common and not at all divisible. The being is constantly changing in the cosmic universe. This means that, although its form undergoes alterations, its matter remains constant. Therefore, the body according to the threefold of matter, form and deprivation, without which its genesis cannot be achieved, undergoes changes and consequently, its motion occurs by carrying out a perpetual circular course in the cosmic universe.
