That is, do you think that Aristotelian philosophy is consistent with things like superfluous phenomena or extraneous philosophical conclusions? Or is Aristotelianism true just in case, everything it says applies to and finds expression in, some really existing manifestation?
To clarify, could there be a universe where Aristotle’s account of the mean is true but extraneous (perhaps because there is no possibility of falling into a vice)?
Or is Aristotle’s ethics true, to the contrary, just in case it corresponds to something actual? (e.g. his ethics is true if and only if, one can actually exceed or fall short of the mean)
Perhaps the future paradise will be at least one such universe where true things (you should never eat too much) are extraneous (since there are no vices in heaven)?
