Here is one of my musements on
a few pertinent paragraphs from
Aristotle's treatise “On the Soul”:
Inquiry Driven Systems • The Formative Tension
We describe one class of existing things as substance (ousia), and this we subdivide into three: (1) matter (hyle),
which in itself is not an individual thing, (2) shape (morphe) or form (eidos), in virtue of which individuality is
directly attributed, and (3) the compound of the two.
Matter is potentiality (dynamis), while form is realization or actuality (entelecheia), and the word actuality is used
in two senses, illustrated by the possession of knowledge (episteme) and the exercise of it (theorein).
