the divine ignorance (and friends)

Fair enough. I was thinking yesterday, and I think the term 'substance' is the trick one, as we use it, the Ancients used it, but we tend to think of it in modern terms ...
I think 'substance' is an unnecessary term that can lead to misunderstanding. I've been looking at Aquinas, for example, and if we're talking about 'substance', we'd have to factor in 'essence' and 'subsistence' and 'nature' and all manner of philosophical technical terms ... As we're not, I'm inclined to think the term 'substance' is redundant.
Yes, but were you looking at Aquinas pre-straw or post-straw? I'm more interested in experiencing what happened post-straw. Pre-straw is just too hard for me, I'm just going to have to hit the post-straw easy button.
