Comments on Michal Chaberek’s Essay (2019) "Classical Metaphysics and Theistic Evolution"

In 2019, Michal Chaberek publishes an inquiry into the incompatibility between classical metaphysics and theistic evolution. Yes, the key word is “incompatible”. The question is “why?”. Is theistic evolution a fig leaf for atheistic materialism? If so, then the incompatibility needs to be nuanced. These comments show how Chaberek’s criticism opens the path to theistic entanglement.

About the Series: A Course on Evolution and Thomism
This course is structured to appreciate the transformative potential of Peircean approaches to evolution and to scholastic philosophy. These topics are related. Can scholastic philosophy produce a theology of evolution? The answer is yes, especially when Peirce’s categories come into play. Peirce enlivens and revives scholastic concepts. The course begins with Speculations on Thomism and Evolution and Comments on Dennis Venema and Scot McKnight’s Book (2017) Adam and the Genome (which is to be read along with the comments). Then select four commentaries from this series or its complement, Peirce's Secondness and Aristotle's Hylomorphism, and read with the original articles.

About the Series: Peirce's Secondness and Aristotle's Hylomorphism
“Hyle” means “matter”. “Morphe” means “form”. According to Aristotle, matter and form are two real, yet contiguous, elements.
C. S. Peirce defines the category of secondness as two contiguous real elements. The category of secondness is the realm of actuality. Actuality participates in the category-based nested form.
This series builds on two primers.
The first is A Primer on the Category-Based Nested Form.
The second is A Primer on Sensible and Social Construction.
A hypothesis unfolds.
Aristotle’s hylomorphism and Peirce’s secondness cohere.
The word, “substance”, may expand to include “the contiguity between two real elements”.
In this definition, Peirce’s postmodernism and Aristotle’s premodernism begin to speak to one another.
These commentaries are conversations.
As for high-school and college education, the above primers, along with six commentaries, constitutes a short course. Read both the original and the commentary.
