Nihil enim habet actualitatem, nisi inquantum est : unde ipsum esse est actualitas omnium rerum, et etiam ipsarum formarum. Unde non comparatur ad alia sicut recipiens ad receptum: sed magis sicut receptum ad recipiens. Cum enim dico esse hominis. vel equi, vel cuiuscumque alterius, ipsum esse consideratur ut formale et receptum : non autem ut illud cui competit esse.

Page 212 - What is the nature of the soul ? " this was permissible, because in previous works we had analysed in detail all the acts and faculties that can be observed in the soul. And we analysed all these with that kind of analysis which belongs to spirit alone, an analysis which does not cut it up into several parts, but considers the single parts without rending them from their one root in which they live and move and have their being, and which is the substance of the soul itself. 1119.

Now, if, as we have seen, we remove from the concept of matter all thought of extension in general, this concept no longer expresses anything. We are then considering force by means of hypothetic, and no longer by means of thetic, abstraction. Hence even St. Thomas teaches, that, if we abstract from all extension, we thereby abstract...

And as the intellect is the receptive power, so the will is the active power which corresponds to it. 1009. Now, since the intellect has, as its essential object, ideal being, which is in itself immutable, it is not susceptible of any development, and has the nature of an immanent act rather than of a...
Page 46 - Intellectus igitur abstrahit speciem rei naturalis a materia sensibili individuali, non autem a materia sensibili communi. Sicut speciem hominis abstrahit ab his carnibus et his ossibus, quae non sunt de ratione speciei, sed sunt partes individui, ut dicitur in VII Metaphys. ; et ideo sine eis considerari potest. Sed species hominis non potest abstrahi per intellectum a carnibus et ossibus.
