Hans Burkhardt

Aristotle, Leibniz, and Contemporary Medicine on the Mereological Structure of Animals


ISBN: 978-3-88405-766-7

Price: €12.80 (including 19 % tax)


Abstract

The theory of substance has a biological background because real substances are not stones, but living entities like human beings and animals like oxen. This preference of living entities lies in the fact that they are unities, thanks to their souls and dominating souls.
The biological background of the concept of substance is traced from Aristotle’s views on the mereological structure of living beings, through aspects of the metaphysics of Descartes and Leibniz to 20thcentury medical views connected with the theory of living systems.
