St. Thomas Aquinas’ On Being and Essence

- In St. Thomas Aquinas’ On Being and Essence, he devotes an entire chapter of his book discussing how essence is found in composite substances. “Form and matter are found in composite substances, as for example soul and body in man. But it cannot be said that either one of these alone is called the essence.’ Aquinas argues that in a composite substance, not only is the form but also matter in the essence of a thing. However, in Metaphysics, Aristotle says that essence is in the form, which acts upon matter....   [tags: Aquinas, Being and Essence, Metaphysics]

On the Essence of God

- ... A way to prove this is Descartes triangle theory, where he states that a triangle has three sides but not because his senses told him that a triangle has three sides. Instead his intellect and knowledge tell him a triangle has three sides, meaning that triangles do exist and this is a clear and distinct perception. Relating this to God we can say that God is just like the triangle where our senses don’t tell us he exists, instead our intellect and knowledge does. Relating this to the real world Descartes states that we can clearly and distinctly perceive that bodies take up physical mass or takes up space....   [tags: religious and philosophical analysis]

The Essence of God

- In many works of literature, there can be some sort of character that either an individual or a society looks up to in regards to being a “supreme force”. This dynamism can help individuals overcome a sense of who they are and what their purpose is in life. According to Descartes, God’s essence, although not physically in character, is engraved within each and every one of us; that is, we all obtain some sort of spirit of God within our physical well being. The relationship held between God and oneself as an existent is that, physically, we are here on this planet and we obtain to essence of God’s spirit in different ways....   [tags: Philosophy, Moral Duty]
