Aristotle's hylomorphism involves the homonymy principle, which states that living bodies and dead bodies are essentially different. Both John Ackrill and Bernard Williams think that the homonymy principle leads to insoluble problems, especially to the so-called body-body-problem. In this essay I try to show that this problem is soluble through a close analysis of some of Aristotle's different concepts of matter.
