In De Generatione et Corruptione (GC) Aristotle distinguishes substantial change, i.e., a coming-to-be or a passing-away of a substance, from all other kinds of accidental change, such as qualitative change, growth and diminution, and locomotion. For all these latter kinds of accidental change, Aristotle explains that there is an underlying substance that persists while its properties undergo changes. But in the case of a substantial change, there is no underlying substance, and without an underlying substance, change cannot be understood. So we are faced with the following dilemma; either one reduces substantial change to merely a kind of accidental change, or else one meets the paradox of becoming out of nothing. It will be argued that Aristotle’s answer to this dilemma is to be found in the indissoluble coupling of a generation with a corresponding corruption. This will also shed new light on the question of prime matter.
