Aquinas' transcendences to Aristotle in the doctrine of essence

Abstract

Aquinas' philosophy is revolutionary, especially his doctrine of essence within the context of natural philosophy has transcended that of Aristotle. The principal distinctions between the doctrines of Aquinas and Aristotle are demonstrated in four layers which are entity-nature, compositeness, particularity and potentiality of essence. Aquinas not only overturns and reforms the Western traditional view of essence, but also constructs a prominent "joint" connecting essentialism to existentialism in Western philosophy. 𸑣𢡢𷀧𡝆𣎘𠡕𦍷𸝡𡘩𤘕𶄶, 𩌅𡀵𦅙𠆂𢌒𳉘𨦂𡝆𣎘𰍀𵠡𢙙𠀓𥕒𠦆𰍀𦐒𶄶 𣎘𵠨, 𦄦𦅴𢌠𶈩𶈴𠄂𠄢𷌤𢝣𢠐𤔃𰍀𦐒𶄶𣎘𵠨. 𸑣𢡢𷀧𡙄𠄢𷌤𢝣𢠐𤔃𰍀𦐒𶄶𣎘𵠨𦍷 𢈵𠀐𣜡𠤤𸔘𤀸𣀄𡌆𡀵: 𦐒𶄶𰍀𣑔𣎄𤘕, 𡔒𥄄𤘕, 𩌅𧔰𤘕𡙄𨔈𢌒𤘕. 𶢐𶠇𶠥𠄣𶈩 𶈴, 𸑣𢡢𷀧𙦁𠅥𹁲𵈆𡙄𸝡𦀲𠄂𵆙𦁁𰍀𠉖𲑹𦐒𶄶𵉦, 𲞀𙦈𶠤𤐘𥄄𠄂𵆙𦁁𡝆𣎘𡒐𙥸𠅴 𦐒𶄶𠀧𠁁𥄐𲝳𶤣𣡓𠀧𠁁𡁀𣎄𢌒𠀧𠁁𰍀𙥨𠀐 "𥊖𨡗".
