Where is God in Aristotle's Hylomorphism

    I'm student of Philosophy and I'm a first year of colleague. We just talked about Aristotle and his Hylomorphism, so I wondered how God fits into this. I mean according to Aristotle everything began from an eternal materia and form. Did God existed before this materia or did that materia also created him ?

      Why don't you ask him, then come back and tell us what he said. wink

      God does not fit in, never did. Why is there need of a god? In this day and age, there's better ways to explain how things came to be. Simply say "god made this or that" is mental laziness.
