In this paper, I shall focus on one specific figure of speech, namely hypallage, metaphor's neighbor, which shares some features of metonymy and enthymeme
Thomas's argument is unpacked as an enthymeme
that assumes the reader's familiarity with Aristotle's discussion of the soul in the De anima, what emerges overall is an argument that is quite different from how it has traditionally been understood.
