Hylomorphism is a philosophical theory developed by Aristotle, which conceives being as a compound of matter and form. The word is a 19th-century term formed from the Greek words ὕλη hyle, "wood, matter", and μορφή, morph, "form". Aristotle's very ancient metaphysics often centered on the four causes of being. They are the material, formal, efficient, and final cause. According to Aristotle, the material cause of a being is its physical properties or makeup. ... And the final cause is the ultimate purpose for its being.
