Ep. 027 – It’s Science! – David Arias.

In a day when science is heralded as an authority among all things, we pause to ask: what is it? This deep dive into natural science through Aristotle’s physics is from Senior Fellow, David Arias who teaches Philosophy of Nature in the Magnus Fellowship. What is nature and what makes a thing natural? Nature vs. art. Science as knowledge through causes. What’s a cause? Understanding the four causes (material, formal, efficient, final). Mobile being as the subject matter of natural science.
