Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Extrinsic, philosophy: intrinsic refers to properties that an object must have in order to be this object. This is not the same as the distinction between essential and non-essential properties. For example, the property of being known by many is an extrinsic property for a human. The person would be the same without this property. See also intrinsicness, essence, properties, features, necessity.
