Ousia ( ə/; Greek: οὐσία) is analogous to the English concepts of being and ontic used in contemporary philosophy. Ousia is often translated (sometimes incorrectly) to Latin as substantia and essentia, and to English as substance and essence. [1]


οὐσία is the ancient Greek noun formed on the feminine present participle of the verb εἰμί, eimí, i.e. "to be, I am".
