Aristotle - index for METAPHYSICA Book 9 Part 4

Capability, some modal reasoning

  
Paragraph 1 If what we have described is identical with the capable or convertible with it, evidently it cannot be true to say 'this is capable of being but will not be', which would imply that the things incapable of being would on this showing vanish.
Paragraph 2 At the same time it is clear that if, when A is real, B must be real, then, when A is possible, B also must be possible.
