QUIDDITAS (QUIDDITY)

сущность, чтойность; суть бытия вещи. По Фоме Аквинскому, «поскольку вещь устанавливается в свой собственный род и вид исходя из того, что мы обозначаем в ее определении, указывающем, что есть данная вещь, - наименование „сущность" изменено философами в наименование „чтойность"» (Фома Аквинский. О сущем и сущности // Verbum. Вып. 2. Наследие Средневековья и современная культура. С. 222).
