Ideas of Mary Louise Gill, by Text

[American, fl. 1989, Professor at the University of Pittsburgh.]

1989 Aristotle on Substance
App p.252 Prime matter has no place in Aristotle's theories, and passages claiming it are misread
Intro p.3 Aristotelian matter seriously threatens the intrinsic unity and substantiality of its object
Ch.1 p.26 Prime matter is actually nothing and potentially everything (or potentially an element)
Ch.1 p.35 Some forms, such as the Prime Mover, are held by Aristotle to exist without matter
Ch.2 p.67 Aether moves in circles and is imperishable; the four elements perish, and move in straight lines
