Movement as incomplete: benefits and challenges for an Aristotelian account

In this lecture, I attempt to spell out what Aristotle means when he claims that movement, as such, is incomplete while it is going on. I argue that Aristotle’s view captures something important about movement that is missed by alternative accounts. I end by raising some further puzzles that a full defence of Aristotle would need to answer.
