POSSIBILITAS (POSSIBILITY)

возможность; принцип или причина изменения; возможность присуща вещи. В Боге нет возможности. Возможность и невозможность были предложены Иоанном Скотом Эриугеной как дополнения к десяти категориям Аристотеля. Однако часто possibilitas использовалась вместо potentia как перевод аристотелевского термина dynamis. Ср.: POTENTIA.
