Many famous philosophers had thought and discussed about actuality and potentiality (they might have used different definitions) in one way or other. Did any one of them defined the limitations for potentiality?
A seed (actuality) can become a tree(potentiality) and it applies for every seed out there. Some seeds might fail to become a tree (it depends on the environment where it is planted). But the limitation for the seed is getting transformed into a tree, and it cannot go any further.
In the same anology, what is the limitation for humans? For example:
In the actuality every human being is same, but coming to potentiality the intellect of humans again depends on the environment (just like in the above example), but now there is no limitation that I can see like in the earlier case.
So, did anyone tried to address this issue in the history? What is the limitation for the human intellect? Thanks in advance.
