Aristotle’s Natural Philosophy Waseda University, SILS, Introduction to History and Philosophy of Science LE, History and Philosophy of ScienceAristotle There can be no real chance or purpose. A natural philosophy based on cause and deduction. And then, all begins anew. And in this instant.” (A Natural Philosophy p. 44) * Note: In a “caused” universe, the organizing intelligence belongs to the Primary Originator. The Originator causes effects (creation) to come into existence. Within every effect/creation resides the controlling mind/will/design/hand of the cause.

Chance is invoked by many to explain order in the universe, the origins of life, even human freedom and happiness. An understanding of Aristotle’s concept of chance is indispensable for an appreciation of his views on nature and ethics, views which have had a tremendous influence on the development of Western philosophy. Natural selection, process in which an organism adapts to its environment through selectively reproducing changes in its genotype. It reduces the disorganizing effects of migration, mutation, and genetic drift by multiplying the incidence of helpful mutations, since harmful mutation carriers leave few or no offspring.

Aristotle describes and argues for the four causes in his books Physics and Metaphysics as a part of developing his philosophy of claims that there are four causes (or explanations) needed to explain change in the world. A complete explanation of any material change will use all four causes. LL.D., editor of the Library of Philosophy series in which Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy was originally published.] Thosewho, relying on the distinction between Math-ematical Philosophy and the Philosophy of Math-ematics, think that this book is out of place .

Few books have exercised a wider influence in their time.Chance is regarded as inconsistent with causal determinism and with physical or mechanical determinism.

The idea that Chance and Necessity are the only two logical options, and that neither is compatible with free will and moral responsibility, is the basis for the standard argument against free will.

The first thinker to suggest a physical explanation for chance in the universe was Epicurus.
