Example text

But Adrastus,144 wanting to show what ‘just-being’ is,145 is, slightly sidestepped the assumptions; and as what he said is useful, and Porphyry actually recorded it,146 I think it better not to pass them by. e. Adrastus] says that of all things some are substrates, and some are the things which belong to them through their substrate. Properly speaking, the substrates are each of the primary substances,147 like some particular man like Socrates, or this stone, but more generally everything to which something else is attributed.

Indeed the just-existent will not belong to something else. For it will not be possible for it to be something existing, unless being signifies many things, in such a way that each is something. But it has been assumed that being signifies one. If then the just-existent belongs to nothing, but the other things belong to it, how can the just-existent signify more being than not-being? 137 The just-existent therefore is not existent; for it is true to say that it is white, and this signified not being.

But of all the things referred to in some way, some are applied to the substrate as belonging and in themselves, and others, in a way, as external and as accidents. In themselves and as belonging are those that signify the ‘what it is’ and the substance of the subjects, like the definitions, and what are completive148 of their substance and are taken up in the definitions, like the genera and the differentiae, and the species themselves and the properties and the things that differ only in name, as in the case of things that have several names.
