The Aš'arite Ontology: I Primary Entities

The present study seeks to lay out the most basic elements of the ontology of classical Aarite theology. In several cases this requires a careful examination of the traditional and the formal lexicography of certain key expressions. The topics primarily treated are: how they understood and and essential natures; the systematic exploitation of the equivocities of certain expressions within a general context in which other than words there are no universals proves to be elegant as well as insightful; the basic categories of primary entities: independant beings and nonindependant beings, created and uncreated, the equivocity of as predicated of contingent entities on the one hand and of God and His attributes on the other, and certain problems that arise because of the rigid application of the system's underlying analytic principles
