Form of the Body

This is will be the last installment on form.

The last main question to consider is what is the form of a human body?

The answer is the rational soul. The rational soul is what makes a human body a human body just as treeness is what makes a tree a tree.

In fact this is the dogmatic teaching the Church which defined the rational soul to be the form of the body in the Council of Vienne.
