Abstract :
This article presents a critical reading of Paul Cortois’ philosophy of symbolic essences. Arguing that specific essences are fundamentally symbolic, Cortois shows that essences have an ineradicable function in culture and society. This article explores whether and how his insights can be applied specifically to the domains of politics and religion.
