ACCIDENT (accido, to happen), a modification or quality which does not essentially belong to a thing, not forming one of its constituent and invariable attributes; accident is in this respect distinguished from property (q.v.).


"Accident, in its widest technical sense (equivalent to attribute) is anything that is attributed to another, and can only he conceived as belonging to some substance (in which sense it is opposed to substance); in its narrower and more properly logical sense, it is a predicable which may be present or absent, the essence of the species remaining the same; as for a man to be 'walking,' or 'a native of Paris'" (Whately, Logic, bk. II. ch. V. sec. 4, and index; Aristotle, Metaphys., lib. IV. cap. 30).—V. SUBSTANCE.
