Sample text

Accordingly, potentiality cannot actualise itself but must be actualised by what is already in being. This means that the possible is defined in terms of its tendency to the realisation of an actual telos. Such an outlook was taken over and even augmented by Aquinas. For he understood the contingency of the created world in terms of the dependency of its partial actualisations (and so its partial perfections), upon the divine simple and infinite actuality. In this manner he considered the actualised ‘necessities’ of the created order which conformed to the regularities of eternal reason to be just as contingent – since they are dependent on the divine creative act – as its apparently more accidental or aleatory features.

The decisive event in the establishment of politike episteme was the specifically philosophical realisation that the levels of being discernible within the world are surmounted by a transcendent source of ­being and its order.
