Aristotle showed that there is more to an object besides its matter or material parts. According to such thinking, objects are compounds of matter (hule) and form (morphe or eidos) and a living organism is not exhausted by the body, cells, organs, and tissue that compose it. In addition, each object also contains an organizational principle, a form, which accounts for its structure, identity and unity. In Form, Matter, Substance, Kathrin Koslicki develops a contemporary defence of the Aristotelian doctrine of hylomorphism. Most significantly, she argues that matter-form compounds, despite their complexity, deserve to be classified as substances due to their high degree of unity.
