This chapter outlines the main features of the hylomorphism of Aristotle and highlights its importance to the Aristotelian philosophy of mind. The methodical and systematic significance of the Aristotelian hylomorphism is explained first with views of the ontology, then with the natural philosophy, and finally with a view on Psychology. Application of Hylomorphism in the context of Aristotle's psychology shows that naturalistic 'potential of hylomorphism features: In a hylomorphism psychology the mental (cognitive, appetitive, emotive) activities is principally seen as a part of nature and explained according to the methodological principles that gather explanatory validity claim for the rest of nature. Thus it is concluded that in the Aristotelian hylomorphism, no fundamental psychological explanation of mental phenomena differentiate from common natural philosophical explanations. The original text of the chapter is in German.
