1928, E. M. Edghill, Categories, translation of original by Aristotle:
- The characteristics ‘terrestrial’ and ‘two-footed’ are predicated of the species ‘man’, but not present in it. For they are not in man. Moreover, the definition of the differentia may be predicated of that of which the differentia itself is predicated.
1948, W.v.O. Quine, On What There Is:
