Explain Aristotle’s views on the nature of the soul. For Aristotle, what is the soul? How does it relate to the physical body? What does Aristotle mean when he calls the soul the body’s “first actuality”? What sorts of things have souls and do they all have the same kind of soul? Plato raised an objection to the “harmony” account of the soul that resembles Aristotle’s that pointed out a harmony is caused by the body, whereas it is the soul that does the causing. How can Aristotle respond to this objection?
