  1. José Filipe Silva (forthcoming). Potentially Human? Aquinas on Aristotle on Human Generation. British Journal for the History of Philosophy:1-19.
    Thomas Aquinas (1225–74) describes embryological development as a succession of vital principles, souls, or substantial forms of which the last places the developing being in its own species. In the case of human beings this form is the rational soul. Aquinas' well-known commitment to the view that there is only one substantial form for each composite (unicity thesis [UT]) and that a substantial form directly informs prime matter (diPM) leads to the conclusion that the succession of soul kinds is non-cumulative.
