A Short History of Philosophy





Matter. This word is used

1st. In opposition to mind. That which we believe to exist but not to be mental we call material.


2ndly. In opposition to form. That which is the basis of anything that exists, but is not distinct or specific till united with form. In this view it need not be material in the former sense. See Form.

It is in this last sense that we speak of the materials on which one has to work, of the matter of a discourse, of anything being material or immaterial to the question at issue.

Finally, in the question What is the matter? we are obviously employing the term in this the Aristotelian sense.
