To define the quiddity of a thing originally meant to define its essential nature, then the word came to mean a subtle distinction and later a quibble. All three senses are called into play in the title of W.V. Quine's "Quiddities". It contains a series of brief essays, in a dictionary form, on subjects ranging from altruism to zero.
