Bellusci, David Christian (2001) Interpreting Aristotle's God. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
Interpreting Aristotle's theistic philosophy remains a source of controversy; arguments concerning Aristotle's deity range from myth to monotheism. My objective is two-fold: first, I show how Aristotle's works build up to God by examining Posterior Analytics, De Anima , the Physics , the Metaphysics and Nicomachean Ethics . The texts are studied in the light of contemporary Aristotelian scholarship representing the varying positions and their implications concerning Aristotle's theism. Second, on the basis of these five works, I argue that Aristotle's theology does not conflict with the Judeo-Christian understanding of God.
