On the Formal Cause of Substance: Metaphysical Disputation XV

Synopsis

Whether there are substantial forms in material things -- In what way substantial forms can come to be in and from matter -- Whether matter temporally precedes form in every eduction of the substantial form -- Whether, when form is educed from matter, it comes to be as such (per se) -- Concerning the proper nature of the substantial form and the nature of its causality -- Concerning the nature of formal causality -- What the effect of the formal cause is -- Whether the substantial form is a true cause of matter and matter is its effect -- Whether the dependence of matter on form is so great that without form matter could not be -- Conserved even through the divine power, nor form without matter -- Whether there is only one formal cause for one substance -- On the metaphysical form, the matter that corresponds to it, and the causality it exercises.
