Quidditism, philosophy: comprises the thesis that the relationship between the roles of physical objects such as inertia and the properties such as mass, which realize inertia, is contingent. In other words, quidditism is about the thesis that there is no necessary connection between properties. (See D. T. Locke, Quidditism, 2009).
