The necessary and the possible


Διαβάστε το άρθρο στα ελληνικά εδώ!

One might raise the question whether “possible to be” follows from “necessary to be”. For if not, the contradictory will follow, “not possible to be”. And even if one were to state that this is not the contradictory, one must say that “possible not to be” is; both of which are false of “necessary to be”. However, the same thing seems to be capable of being cut and of not being cut, of being and of not being, so that the necessary will be contingent not to be. It is clear then that not everything capable either of being or of walking is capable of the opposites also, but there are things of which this is not true.
