My aim in this paper is to reconstruct a certain path of problems which arise, one after another, from an important range of discussions, which unfolded from the middle of the 13th century to the middle of the 14th century among authors writing in Latin, defenders of a hylomorphic description of the constitution of material entities. I will follow in particular John Duns Scotus’ texts on the dispute. Thereby we will find out how it is that in the background of a question apparently concerned solely with the description of the physical world lies a quite deep metaphysical quarrel.
