argues that general physical principles, like the Principle of Least Action, demonstrate that the behaviour of physical objects is determined also by factors independent of their dispositions and intrinsic properties. Dispositional essentialism is defended by Ellis (2005) . Drawing on science, it should be made clear that ME does not overlap with scientific essentialism either, since the essential kinds posited from the view of some metaphysical taxonomy need not be matched exactly with the essential kinds in the taxonomy of any branch of science at-a-time. It would

– and particular powers (i. e. modes). This reduction would make my framework compatible with strong law dispositionalism. Yet, I cannot accomplish it here. McKitrick (2018), introducing five objections against necessitarianism based on dispositional essentialism, suggests some options that have been discussed here to a larger extent: the contingent instantiation of properties connected with powers; the existence of non-deterministic powers; the existence of non-essential powers.
