La catégorie naturelle ultime

Revue de Métaphysique et de Morale 98 (3):367 - 393 (1993)
Toute connaissance, animale et humaine, n'est autre chose que l'expression plus ou moins consciente de l'intelligibilité de la nature. La substance est l'objet de la métaphysique réaliste selon laquelle l'intelligibilité est une propriété des choses avant d'être découverte. La substance est la catégorie naturelle ultime scientifiquement et philosophiquement indispensable, d'où le caractère auto-réfutant des doctrines qui visent à s'en passer. All knowledge, animal and human, is nothing but the more or less conscious expression of the intelligibility of nature. Substance is the object of Realist Metaphysics according to which intelligibility is an intrinsic property of things. Substance is the ultimate natural category both scientifically and philosophically indispensable. There is then no wonder if non-realist doctrines end up by refuting themselves.
