NATURE AND THE LIVING THING IN ARISTOTLE'S BIOLOGY BY GEORGE KIMBALL PLOCHMANN I Writers of many persuasions and interests have employed expres-sions like nature and living thing, or such rough substitutes as cosmos and animal, to distinguish two realms or kinds of things, and corre-spondingly two subjects of scientific inquiry.

But in turn. As a biologist, Aristotle recognized that living things include plants as well as human and non-human animals. [He says that plants have a vegetative structure (a way of functioning) which is primarily about taking in nutrients, reproducing, and the like.

On the Soul (Greek Περὶ Ψυχῆς (Perì Psūchês), Latin De Anima) is a major treatise by Aristotle on the nature of living things. His discussion centres on the kinds of souls possessed by different kinds of living things, distinguished by their different operations.

For Aristotle, living entities are exemplars of substance being. This means that they show a unity of matter and form on the one hand and of potency and act on the other, in contrast to the duality shown in these respects by accidental beings, exemplified by by: 3.

Living a moral life, Aristotle believed, was the ultimate goal. matter was the physical substance of things, while form was the unique nature. "The words 'prior' and 'posterior' are applied (1) to some things (on the assumption that there is a first, i.e.

a beginning, in each class) because they are nearer some beginning determined either absolutely and by nature, or by reference to something or in some place or by certain people; e.g.

things are prior in place because they are nearer. For Aristotle, the soul is the form of a living being. Because all beings are composites of form and matter, the form of living beings is that which endows them with what is specific to living beings, e.g. the ability to initiate movement (or in the case of plants, growth and chemical transformations, which Aristotle considers types of movement).

The rest of the book is divided into a determination of the nature of the nutritive and sensitive souls. (1) All species of living things, plant or animal, must be able to nourish themselves and reproduce others of the same kind. The Physics (from ta phusika "the natural [things]") is Aristotle's principal work on nature.

In Physics II.1, Aristotle defines a nature as "a source or cause of being moved and of being at rest in that to which it belongs primarily". In other words, a nature is the principle within a natural raw material that is the source of tendencies to change or rest in a particular way unless stopped.

Aristotle was possibly the world’s first biologist or zoologist. He takes a very biological, scientific view at first in explaining human nature. He says we must look not at the matter humans are made of (flesh, blood, bone) but at the form we have taken, the arrangement of our organs, circulation, reproductive system etc.

"In all things of nature there is something of the " - Aristotle quotes from Aristotle firmly believed that humans were social animals by their nature, writing, "Man is a political animal." Because of this, Aristotle said that society was integral to humans, not only in their true nature, but in how humans came to perceive themselves.
