Ideas of Joan Kung, by Text

[American, fl. 1977, At Marquette University]

1977 Aristotle on Essence and Explanation
Intro p.361 Aristotelian essences underlie a thing's existence, explain it, and must belong to it
II p.364 Jones may cease to exist without some simple property, but that doesn't make it essential
II p.366 Some peripheral properties are explained by essential ones, but don't themselves explain properties
II p.366 Some non-essential properties may explain more than essential-but-peripheral ones do
III p.367 A property may belong essentially to one thing and contingently to another
