Brian, You're right about the controversial nature of this statement, and some commentators have called Aristotle's claims about universals contradictory. One can make a strong argument that he rejects the idea that Platonic Forms can have an independent, ontological existence outside of their existence in the mind. Someone who isn't so sure is S. Marc Cohen, who wrote "Aristotle's Metaphysics" in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. It's worth reading, both for its brevity and its exemplary equivocation. I hope you can attend our meeting Saturday to continue the discussion.
