Medieval Aristotelianism and the Case against Secondary Causation in Nature

In Thomas V. Morris (ed.), Divine and Human Action: Essays in the Metaphysics of Theism. Cornell Up. pp. 74-118 (1988)
Abstract
Central to the western theistic understanding of divine providence is the conviction that God is the sovereign Lord of nature. He created the physical universe and continually conserves it in existence. What's more, He is always and everywhere active in it by His power. The operations of nature, be they minute or catastrophic, commonplace or unprecedented, are the work of His hands, and without His constant causal influence none of them would or could occur.
