Author’s Introduction

  1. Professor Copi has given us a fine analysis and comparison of Aristotle and Locke on essence and accident. For this part of "Copi (Irving M.) - Essence and Accident" I have nothing but admiration, and, though I shall make some additions, I shall not hesitate to build my argument on the historical base he has elucidated.
  2. I cannot, however, accept the suggestions which Mr. Copi offers in the last three or four pages of his paper, and my contribution to this symposium will consist mainly of a presentation of reasons for rejection of these suggestions, plus a few counter-suggestions of my own, which I shall have but scant space to defend.
