Subject: What is qua?
I keep seeing this in Aristotle's Metaphysics and it's a puzzle. "Qua being" comes up frequently. Can someone explain it? I think it was in book Delta. I assume you wont object to answering me because I'm not doing this for a paper so it wouldn't be unethical (white trash) to respond. Thank you.

Latin for "as" - "being qua being" is literally "being as being", being considered solely as being.
