Abstract

GARROCHO SALCEDO, Diego Sebastián. HYLOMORFISM IN EVOLUTION. A MORAL APPROACH TO THE RELATION BETWEEN BODY AND SOUL IN ARISTOTLE. Univ. philos. [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.67, pp.165-181. ISSN 0120-5323.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11144/Javeriana.uph33-67.heca.

This paper aims to restore the doctrinal continuity on the basis of the Aristotelian analysis of the relation between body and soul. First, we attempt to bring into question some classical dichotomies used to summarize the hylomorphic theory. We shall also try to demonstrate the impossibility of characterizing this theory as monism rather than dualism. Finally, in light of the doctrine that seems to be exposed in De Anima, we will do a comparative analysis between this final period of the Aristotelian thought and the thesis contained within his moral texts.

Keywords : Aristotle; body; soul; passions; hylomorfism.
