Question description

While the influence of Plato's Theory of Forms is pretty evident in Aristotle's Metaphysics, he means something different by 'form'.

What makes his view of form different from Plato's?

How does Aristotle's conception of 'formal cause' connect with his notion of 'form'?

How does his conception of potentiality and actuality connect with his notion of 'form'?

Any further thoughts?
