    (i) Interpretations of Aristotle's account of the relation between body and soul have been widely divergent. At one extreme, Thomas Slakey has said that in the De Anima 'Aristotle tries to explain perception simply as an event in the sense-organs'.1 Wallace Matson has generalized the point.   Aristotle on the sense‐organs Aristotle on the sense‐organs Green, Christopher D.

Aristotelian physics is the form of natural science described in the works of the Greek philosopher Aristotle (– BCE).In his work Physics, Aristotle intended to establish general principles of change that govern all natural bodies, both living and inanimate, celestial and terrestrial – including all motion (change with respect to place), quantitative change (change with respect to.

    Aristotle’s theory is that the contained air in the ear, and water in the eye becomes continuous with the external medium and can therefore be moved by it. Of the four elements only air and water can be media for sensing. This is shown by arguing that sense-organs cannot be made so . Aristotle doesn't resolve this, and the end of the chapter "looks like a number of lecturer's questions thrown out seriatim by way of challenge" (D. W. Hamlyn, Aristotle's De Anima, Books II and III, Oxford: Clarendon Press, , p). But he does suggest in one of his questions that there is something more to sensing than being affected by.
