Our conviction

We put our whole personalities behind what we impart:

  • For us that means being a reliable partner.
  • This also finds expression in our understanding of reponsibility, which emanates from a Christian source of values.

We combine high-performance work with the pleasure of successful implementation:

  • We believe in a holistic view of people where body and soul are as equally united in one unit as work and life. This is how we think and how we want to work together with you.
  • Our motto captures this: anima forma corporis.

A consistent focus on implementation is key:

  • We don’t set great store by what is trendy and in fashion but rather by what works.
  • We are awkward! We challenge you and your staff to move outside your comfort zone – in the best interests of others and of the matter in hand.
  • We don’t wear blinkers – we always act with a sound sense of proportion. We consider appreciating and valuing others to be an essential pre-requisite for the change that is being aspired to.

 


anima forma corporis

Prof. Dr. Joachim Söder: Aristotle’s De Anima II, 1 (412a19-28) develops the notion that the soul is a form of the body. For form, Aristotle uses two expressions: eidos and entelecheia, though entelecheia serves to explain eidos: The soul is eidos (form) of the body because it is the fundamental capacity of realisation (entelecheia prôtê) for the latent opportunities (dynameis) in the material of the body.
This anthropological initial position is first taken up again in the Latin Middle Ages around 1240 by Albertus Magnus (De homine 29-49) who, however, prefers the translation “actus” for “entelecheia”: “anima est actus corporis”.

Albertus’ pupil Thomas Aquinas largely follows the anthropology of his teacher (at the time considered to be a revolutionary atrocity) but uses the translation “forma” for “entelecheia”. Thus one finds in his Quodlibetum X, quaestio 3 articulus 2 the definition: “By its very nature the soul is a form of the body” (“anima secundum essentiam est forma corporis”).
