Abstract

The problem of the Aristotelian First Unmoved Mover presents hermeneutical challenges to researchers. What mean matter, movement and potentiality in Aristotle’s metaphysics? How does actuality and final cause cooperate to secure motion, explaining the Being and the Unity? What is the causal connection between the Prime Mover and the particular objects and how could it explain the multiple Moved Movers? Why the Unmoved Mover is defined as the thought that thinks on itself and in which way the prototype of Substance can transform the relationship between the Aristotelian ontology and theology?
