45The dyadic character of the chain of being is one which effects a specification and division amongst 8 Arabic. Thought: Hierarchy, Substance and Combination classes of elements belonging to the chain, but this division is not absolute and does not sunder the essential generative unity, the unity of dependence and hierarchy, which fashions the chain. Man lies at the confluence of these two classes of things. He is body and soul: body in so far as he is the terminal point in the ascension of corporeals to higher stations, and soul in as much as he is the terminal point reached by incorporeal substances in their descent from the more absolute realms of sublimity.
This is what Ghazili (d. 50511 1 1 1) meant when he declared that matter is every object capable of acquiring an entelechy when associated with something apart from itself. This raw material of all generational processes was termed matter, hyle, or other names by the philosophers. The philosophers' adversaries, and mainly Ash'arite theologians, ascribed the same properties to what they conceived to be the original material out of which all things are fashioned: the atom, literally 'individual substance' oawhar fard), or 'indivisible single substance' oawhar wiihid ghair munqasim), or again and very commonly the 'indivisible part or component' (al-juz ' alladhi liz yatajazza ').
