  • Aristotle’s Understanding of Nature ( Physis )
    • Essential characteristic – The essence of something that makes it what it is. This essential characteristic is discovered by logos or reasoned speech.

The terminal and peculiar excellence of a thing is not necessarily what that thing actually is in its present condition, but how it ought to be in its perfected state.
