: Argh. We spent a good 15-20 posts awhile back arguing just this. I was pointing out that your whole philosophy (and Hegel's) was a re-worked Aristotelian essentialism. You fiercely denied it and then you go and post this. You've blatantly just admitted to essentialism. Ugh, if I didn't respect you for the worthy opponent you are, I'd probably say very rude, insulting things like I do to Lark, SDF, and QX when they babble on and on..

I didn't deny that Hegel's was, I did deny that mine is. Plus I was winding you up. Also, if you'll look closely you'll note I say that there is no essence, except in movement, i.e. that there is no essence of the thing, only of movement. I suspect hegel hath, as usual, changed teh meaning of a commonly used word.
