Aristotelian philosophy gave Aquinas, Giles of Rome, Scotus, and Ockham the philosophical tools they needed to formulate real presence and sacramental causality precisely. This chapter orients by explaining and motivating Aristotelian understandings of the metaphysical structure of corporeal things and Aristotelian ideas of place. Topics surveyed include atomism vs matter/form composition, unity vs plurality of substantial forms, the reification of accidents, universals and individuation, three-dimensional place vs place as two-dimensional container, formal vs material place and their relevance to locomotion.
