(p.236) Conclusion: On Material in Aristotle’s Biology
Aristotle on the Matter of Form

Adriel M. Trott

Edinburgh University Press

The conclusion returns to the concern over whether material in Aristotle is subordinated to form, and thus whether Aristotle promulgates a normative metaphysics that maligns matter. The chapter draws together the various aspects of the argument to conclude that Aristotle gives material its own power. The Conclusion considers the implications of this argument for fitting Aristotle into the one-sex and two-sex models and shows how the Möbius strip is a useful model for conceiving the relationship of form to matter.

Keywords:   One-sex, two-sex, Möbius strip, normative metaphysics
