1 1, 2 | in motion except it is in potentiality to that towards ~which it 2 1, 2 | reduction of something from ~potentiality to actuality. But nothing 3 1, 2 | nothing can be reduced from potentiality ~to actuality, except by 4 1, 2 | at once in actuality and potentiality in ~the same respect, but 5 1, 3 | in act, and in no way in potentiality. For ~although in any single 6 1, 3 | single thing that passes from potentiality to actuality, ~the potentiality 7 1, 3 | potentiality to actuality, ~the potentiality is prior in time to the 8 1, 3 | speaking, actuality is prior to potentiality; for whatever is ~in potentiality 9 1, 3 | potentiality; for whatever is ~in potentiality can be reduced into actuality 10 1, 3 | God there should be any potentiality. But ~every body is in potentiality 11 1, 3 | potentiality. But ~every body is in potentiality because the continuous, 12 1, 3 | First, ~because matter is in potentiality. But we have shown (Q[2], 13 1, 3 | is pure act, without any potentiality. Hence it is impossible 14 1, 3 | reality, as actuality to potentiality. Therefore, since in God ~ 15 1, 3 | since in God ~there is no potentiality, as shown above (A[1]), 16 1, 3 | actuality is related to potentiality. For animal is derived from ~ 17 1, 3 | sense, as actuality is to ~potentiality. The same argument holds 18 1, 3 | actuality is not added to potentiality, it is impossible that He ~ 19 1, 3 | compared to its accidents as ~potentiality to actuality; for a subject 20 1, 3 | accidents. But there can be no potentiality in God, as was shown ~(Q[ 21 1, 3 | composite there ~must be potentiality and actuality; but this 22 1, 3 | is merely potential; and potentiality is absolutely ~posterior 23 1, 4 | called perfect, when from potentiality they are brought into ~actuality, 24 1, 4 | although ~to pre-exist in the potentiality of a material cause is to 25 1, 5 | actuality properly correlates to potentiality; ~a thing is, in consequence, 26 1, 5 | from that which is only in potentiality; and ~this is precisely 27 1, 7 | receives its form, is in potentiality to many forms; but on receiving ~ 28 1, 7 | substantial form, remains in potentiality to many ~accidental forms, 29 1, 7 | infinite, inasmuch as it is in potentiality to an infinite ~number of 30 1, 7 | primary matter even as a ~potentiality is not absolutely infinite, 31 1, 7 | relatively, because its ~potentiality extends only to natural 32 1, 7 | successively; ~hence they have potentiality mixed with actuality. But 33 1, 7 | proper to matter to be in ~potentiality.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[7] A[4] 34 1, 7 | is not impossible for a potentiality to be made actual. But number 35 1, 7 | 1/1~Reply OBJ 1: Every potentiality is made actual according 36 1, 9 | without the admixture of any potentiality, for the reason that, ~absolutely, 37 1, 9 | reason that, ~absolutely, potentiality is posterior to act. Now 38 1, 9 | changed, is in some way in potentiality. Hence it is evident that ~ 39 1, 9 | belong to a thing existing in potentiality, as we now speak of ~change 40 1, 9 | form perfects the ~whole potentiality of the matter; therefore 41 1, 9 | their own existence are as potentiality to act, are not ~consistent 42 1, 9 | mutability: one as regards their potentiality to their end; and ~in that 43 1, 9 | every creature there is a potentiality to change either as ~regards 44 1, 11 | is relative being (as a potentiality) is non-being absolutely, 45 1, 12 | without any admixture of potentiality, is in Himself ~supremely 46 1, 12 | effect of its cause, and as potentiality to its act; and in this 47 1, 13 | implies that He is not a mere potentiality, as is primary matter. ~ 48 1, 13 | knowable is considered as a potentiality, and the science as a habit, 49 1, 14 | it is the mean between ~potentiality and act. Therefore knowledge 50 1, 14 | object, since both are in ~potentiality.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[14] A[ 51 1, 14 | God has nothing in Him of potentiality, but is pure act, ~His intellect 52 1, 14 | intellect which is sometimes in potentiality; ~because the fact of its 53 1, 14 | its being in a state of potentiality makes it differ ~from the 54 1, 14 | be perfected thereby, as potentiality is perfected by act. On ~ 55 1, 14 | intellect, which is no way in potentiality, is not perfected by the 56 1, 14 | primary matter, ~which is a potentiality, unless it is reduced to 57 1, 14 | natural things; for it is in potentiality as ~regards intelligible 58 1, 14 | known according as it is ~in potentiality, but in so far as it is 59 1, 14 | free from all ~matter and potentiality, that God is cognitive, 60 1, 14 | substance ~would be related, as potentiality is to act, which is altogether ~ 61 1, 14 | when ~it is reduced from potentiality to act, acquires first a 62 1, 14 | in so far as they ~are in potentiality; for it is true that they 63 1, 14 | is true that they are in potentiality; and as ~such they are known 64 1, 14 | participates in heat. So, things in potentiality are known by God, ~although 65 1, 14 | intellect which is not in potentiality does ~not know privation. 66 1, 14 | intellect of God is never in ~potentiality, but is always in act, as 67 1, 14 | intellect which is not in potentiality, does not know privation ~ 68 1, 14 | matter, which, since it is in potentiality only, is altogether unlike ~ 69 1, 14 | Although matter as regards its potentiality recedes from ~likeness to 70 1, 18 | being, i.e. of a thing in potentiality, is called movement; or 71 1, 18 | that is, of what is in potentiality; while this kind of act 72 1, 25 | potential. ~Whence this potentiality is not in God, but only 73 1, 26 | so far as it ~passes from potentiality to act. As, then, God has 74 1, 27 | life does not proceed from potentiality to act, ~procession (if 75 1, 27 | importing the issuing forth from potentiality to act; in ~which sense 76 1, 42 | intellect passing from ~potentiality to act; and this cannot 77 1, 42 | of one proceeding from potentiality to act, it follows that 78 1, 44 | primary matter is only in ~potentiality, formally considered in 79 1, 45 | is the act of what is in ~potentiality. Therefore it is impossible 80 1, 45 | the same ~being only in potentiality, as in substantial change, 81 1, 45 | the subject which is in potentiality. And so the ~contrary resists 82 1, 45 | inasmuch as it impedes the potentiality from ~the act which the 83 1, 45 | dispositions, whereby the potentiality (of the water) is ~restrained 84 1, 45 | to act; and the more the potentiality is ~restrained, the more 85 1, 45 | required in the agent when no ~potentiality pre-exists. Thus therefore 86 1, 45 | proportion to the distance of the potentiality from the act, it follows ~ 87 1, 45 | something from no presupposed ~potentiality is infinite, because there 88 1, 45 | proportion between "no ~potentiality" and the potentiality presupposed 89 1, 45 | no ~potentiality" and the potentiality presupposed by the power 90 1, 45 | to ~distinguish between potentiality and act. For because forms 91 1, 45 | pre-exist in ~matter, "in potentiality," they asserted that they 92 1, 46 | is matter, ~which is in potentiality to existence, which results 93 1, 47 | necessarily composition of potentiality and act, as will appear ~ 94 1, 47 | understood itself as in potentiality it produced the heavenly ~ 95 1, 48 | the same - viz. ~being in potentiality, whether it be being in 96 1, 48 | it be being in absolute potentiality, as ~primary matter, which 97 1, 48 | it be being in relative ~potentiality, and absolute actuality, 98 1, 48 | For as it has ~being in potentiality, so has it goodness in potentiality. 99 1, 48 | potentiality, so has it goodness in potentiality. Therefore, the ~subject 100 1, 48 | intensified, the more is the potentiality remitted as regards the ~ 101 1, 48 | consists in act, and not in potentiality, and the ultimate act ~is 102 1, 49 | good. Even matter, as a potentiality to good, has the ~nature 103 1, 49 | privation is a being in potentiality, as was said ~above (Q[48], 104 1, 49 | that good ~which has some potentiality, but not to the supreme 105 1, 50 | angel, yet there is act and potentiality. And this can be made evident 106 1, 50 | to its own ~existence as potentiality to act. Therefore if there 107 1, 50 | its very ~existence, as of potentiality to act. And such a kind 108 1, 50 | contrariety, or at least the potentiality of matter.~ 109 1, 53 | movement of that which is in potentiality is the act of ~an imperfect 110 1, 53 | movement of that which is in potentiality is the act of ~an imperfect 111 1, 53 | are likewise infinite in potentiality, it follows that ~between 112 1, 53 | places ~are infinite in potentiality, so likewise must there 113 1, 54 | which has some admixture of potentiality, to be its own ~actuality: 114 1, 54 | actuality is opposed to potentiality. But God alone is ~pure 115 1, 54 | and is compared to it as ~potentiality is to act, as is evident 116 1, 54 | compared to accident as potentiality is to ~act. God alone is 117 1, 54 | but is compared to it ~as potentiality is to act, can be the subject 118 1, 54 | The power of matter is a potentiality in regard to ~substantial 119 1, 54 | understand sometimes only in potentiality, ~and not actually. Hence 120 1, 54 | of understanding, is in potentiality to intelligible things, 121 1, 54 | are only intelligible in potentiality so long as they ~are outside 122 1, 54 | sometimes understanding only in potentiality, with regard to such ~things 123 1, 54 | are their intelligible in ~potentiality, but they are actually such; 124 1, 54 | which are intelligible in potentiality, ~in so far as by abstraction 125 1, 54 | passive intellect to be in potentiality with regard to ~things which 126 1, 54 | which he is sometimes in ~potentiality. But if anyone wishes to 127 1, 55 | not perfectly complete the potentiality of the matter: because the 128 1, 55 | the matter: because the potentiality of the matter ~extends to 129 1, 55 | from both as from act and potentiality: so likewise the intellect 130 1, 55 | have in their nature a potentiality which is fully perfected 131 1, 55 | in the lower bodies the potentiality of matter is not entirely ~ 132 1, 55 | fashion, midway between potentiality and act. If, therefore, 133 1, 56 | there is only ~knowledge in potentiality; and in order that there 134 1, 56 | object, but as knowing in potentiality. Now, ~for the form to be 135 1, 56 | in so far as if is in ~potentiality, to be moved and to be passive. 136 1, 58 | intellect be sometimes in potentiality, and ~sometimes in act?~( 137 1, 58 | intellect is sometimes in potentiality, sometimes in ~act?~Aquin.: 138 1, 58 | intellect is sometimes in ~potentiality and sometimes in act. For 139 1, 58 | is the act of what is in ~potentiality, as stated in Phys. iii, 140 1, 58 | minds are sometimes in potentiality.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[58] A[ 141 1, 58 | desires to know anything is in potentiality thereto. But it ~is said ( 142 1, 58 | intellect is sometimes in potentiality.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[58] A[ 143 1, 58 | intelligence has some admixture of potentiality. Therefore it sometimes ~ 144 1, 58 | contemplating intellect is not in potentiality, but ~in act. Therefore 145 1, 58 | intellect of an angel is not in potentiality.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[58] A[ 146 1, 58 | 32), the intellect is in potentiality in two ways; first, "as ~ 147 1, 58 | s intellect is ~never in potentiality with regard to the things 148 1, 58 | heavenly, bodies have ~no potentiality to existence, which is not 149 1, 58 | angels, have no intelligible ~potentiality which is not fully completed 150 1, 58 | hinder them from being in potentiality: because even the ~heavenly 151 1, 58 | heavenly bodies are at times in potentiality to being enlightened by 152 1, 58 | angel's intellect can be in potentiality with ~regard to things learnt 153 1, 58 | is never in this way in potentiality; because he is always ~actually 154 1, 58 | of something existing in potentiality, but as the act ~of something 155 1, 58 | s substance there is no potentiality divested ~of act. In the 156 1, 58 | intellect is never so in ~potentiality as to be without act.~Aquin.: 157 1, 61 | the matter from a state of potentiality to actuality; ~but they 158 1, 63 | except in things which are in potentiality, as ~is said by the Philosopher ( 159 1, 63 | privation is a being in potentiality. But the angels have not 160 1, 63 | angels have not being in ~potentiality, since they are subsisting 161 1, 63 | In the angels there is no potentiality to natural ~existence. Yet 162 1, 63 | existence. Yet there is potentiality in their intellective part, 163 1, 65 | matter being brought from potentiality into act by some composite ~ 164 1, 65 | creatures no ~transmutation from potentiality to act can have taken place, 165 1, 66 | says; in the same way as potentiality is prior to act, and the ~ 166 1, 66 | invisible" or "void," and its potentiality is completed by form; thus ~ 167 1, 66 | effect in act from being in potentiality; ~and consequently in the 168 1, 66 | the operations of nature potentiality must precede ~act in time, 169 1, 66 | is essentially being in potentiality. Hence it ~is more repugnant 170 1, 66 | same act befits the same potentiality. But all bodies have the 171 1, 66 | considered in itself, is only in potentiality. ~But distinction is due 172 1, 66 | it ~is in itself, is in potentiality to form.~Aquin.: SMT FP 173 1, 66 | in itself, then, it is in potentiality in respect to all ~those 174 1, 66 | form. Hence it remains in potentiality to all ~other forms. And 175 1, 66 | virtually in themselves. For ~potentiality in itself is indifferent 176 1, 66 | imperfect form it is in potentiality to a ~perfect form, and " 177 1, 66 | incorruptible body, would be in potentiality to the form ~of a corruptible 178 1, 66 | form in that which ~is in potentiality thereto is privation. But 179 1, 66 | the heaven - beings in ~potentiality with regard to place, though 180 1, 66 | considered in ~itself, is in potentiality to that form alone which 181 1, 66 | that there remains in it no potentiality with respect to ~being, 182 1, 66 | agree in the character of ~potentiality.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[66] A[ 183 1, 66 | their ~different modes of potentiality, as is said in Metaph. x, 184 1, 66 | Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 4: As potentiality is directed towards act, 185 1, 66 | the celestial ~is not in potentiality to an elemental form.~Aquin.: 186 1, 70 | entirely, which ~is not in potentiality to other forms; whereas 187 1, 75 | be moved is to pass from ~potentiality to actuality, the mover 188 1, 75 | soul, but that there be a potentiality in ~the soul for such a 189 1, 75 | distinguish between actuality and potentiality; and so they held that the ~ 190 1, 75 | in so far as each is in potentiality to its object. ~But in another 191 1, 75 | of matter and form. For ~potentiality is opposed to actuality. 192 1, 75 | whatsoever things ~are in potentiality participate of the first 193 1, 75 | participate of the first potentiality. But the first ~potentiality 194 1, 75 | potentiality. But the first ~potentiality is primary matter. Therefore, 195 1, 75 | is, after ~a manner, in potentiality; which appears from the 196 1, 75 | and that ~which is purely potentiality cannot be part of an act, 197 1, 75 | be part of an act, since potentiality ~is repugnant to actuality 198 1, 75 | Its processions. Now as ~potentiality is receptive of act, it 199 1, 75 | that there cannot be one ~potentiality which receives all acts, 200 1, 75 | for then the receptive potentiality would ~equal the active 201 1, 75 | would ~equal the active potentiality of the First Act. Now the 202 1, 75 | Act. Now the receptive ~potentiality in the intellectual soul 203 1, 75 | other than the receptive ~potentiality of first matter, as appears 204 1, 75 | the existence of such a ~potentiality in the intellectual soul 205 1, 75 | reason of its being in potentiality.

There is a potentiality ~which is always perfected 400 1, 78 | And there is another potentiality which is not ~always in 401 1, 78 | in act, but proceeds from potentiality to act; as we observe in ~ 402 1, 78 | Divine ~intellect, is in potentiality with regard to things intelligible, 403 1, 78 | at first we are only in potentiality to understand, and afterwards ~ 404 1, 78 | anything which is reduced from potentiality to act.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[ 405 1, 78 | the intellect ~which is in potentiality to things intelligible, 406 1, 78 | But because sense is in potentiality to things sensible, ~the 407 1, 78 | since ~our intellect is in potentiality to things intelligible, 408 1, 78 | nothing is reduced ~from potentiality to act except by something 409 1, 78 | But nothing can be in ~potentiality and in act with regard to 410 1, 78 | passive intellect, which is in potentiality to all things intelligible, ~ 411 1, 78 | understand, it passes from potentiality to act. Therefore there 412 1, 78 | the intellect which is in potentiality.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[79] A[ 413 1, 78 | immaterial, but it ~is in potentiality to determinate species. 414 1, 78 | species, but are immaterial in potentiality. ~Wherefore nothing prevents 415 1, 78 | reason of its being in potentiality to such species.~Aquin.: 416 1, 78 | And, even then, it is in ~potentiality, but not in the same way 417 1, 78 | for even then is it in potentiality in a certain sense, ~though 418 1, 78 | habitual knowledge is in potentiality to actual ~consideration.~ 419 1, 78 | in the intellect only ~in potentiality, and then the intellect 420 1, 78 | intellect is said to be in potentiality. ~Sometimes the intelligible 421 1, 78 | a middle state, between ~potentiality and act: and then we have 422 1, 78 | that "in which all are in potentiality." Wherefore the ~passive 423 1, 78 | in act is ~to a being in potentiality; whereas the passive power, 424 1, 78 | to its object as being in potentiality is to a being in act. ~Therefore 425 1, 78 | intellect, which is sometimes in potentiality only, and thus it ~is called 426 1, 81 | one and in the same thing potentiality precedes act, and ~imperfection 427 1, 81 | perfect: for thus act precedes potentiality.
