 Introduction

Natural Science cannot do without the concept of change, which is central to Aristotle's concept of nature, since according to him nature is a principle of change and rest. Motion is the most important type of change, and motion is change of place. Places are items specified in answers to where‐questions, i.e. in predications that state where something is. Such predications are canonically those that state what something is in.

Keywords: change; motion; Natural Science; nature; place; rest; where; where‐questions
