Bubner I 174
Theology/Quest for Knowledge/Aristotle: this is how a connection between the two comes about.
God/Aristotle/Bubner: God does not live as a pure principle, he represents the most perfect reality. ULtimately fulfulled activity.

Höffe I 52
God/Aristotle/Höffe: The Aristotelian Godhead is not an omnipotent, omniscient and omniscient person, but a first unmoved mover, who does not move like a motor, but like something that is loved. This Deity is a pure, impersonal spirit who does not concern himself with the affairs of men nor does he worry about other things in the world.
