To use traditional language, this approach would call for treating both wholes and parts contextually and assigning to both a status that would allow the investigator to view them as Aristotelian ousiai. Whether such a practice is theoretically feasible ARISTOTLE 35 is another issue, yet its potential fruitfulness cannot be easily dismissed. Despite the prevailing tendency to avoid the revival of Aristotelian models of the ultimacy of wholes with attendant modifications in the logic of explanations, the recent discoveries in the physical and biological sciences have provided ample and irrefutable evidence against the postulated existence of ultimate simples.
Z To arrive at such a non-Aristotelian view on the relationship between the logical and natural subject-matters, would be mandatory to challenge and subsequently reject the concept of whole in scientific explanations, which would also entail the rejection of Aristotle's categorial theory. It matters little whether one states the rejection at the logical or natural side of Aristotelianism. Since the two sides are mutually supportive of the broader view and constitute integral components of the same theoretical framework, the outcome leads to denial of their unity.
