Example text

28 Aristotle and the Science of Nature another departmental science, if there is one, to which the science of nature is subordinated, or by an that is common to all (alternatively: common to all ) (185 a 2–3). Aristotle is remarkably reticent and does not discuss the alternative he is offering in this passage. 57 In translating 185 a 2–3, I have made it explicit that the relation between the science of nature and this other departmental science envisioned by Aristotle must be a relation of subordination.

Aristotle’s science of nature 21 being. Aristotle makes this point in the DA: we often follow phantasiai against knowledge (433 a 10–11). What appears to be the good accompanied with the appropriate desire suffices for action. But if this is the case, for human beings as well as for the non-rational animals, phantasia, accompanied with the appropriate desire, is sufficient for moving from one place to another. The position defended in PA 1 is briefly recalled in the Metaphysics. In his discussion of the partition of theoretical sciences into the science of nature, mathematics, and theology, Aristotle claims that the job of the student of nature is to study “some soul” (1026 a 5).

Aristotle’s science of nature 15 and plants form one department of reality, but they do not fall under some higher genos like the different species of animals do. We have therefore to look for the relevant generic unity. One possibility is to argue that the science of nature is a methodologically unified science and claim that methodological unity is enough to secure the required generic unity. Let us return to the beginning of the Meteorology, and in particular to the question whether the study of plants and animals can be exhaustively conducted in accordance with the method indicated – clause (6).
