To him, essence is anything that is or has a character—this includes thoughts, imaginings, derivations of logic, and material objects. Nothing can be experienced but through these essences, and they "are the only things people ever see, and the last they notice. Matter is the objective, material stuff of the universe. Staying true to his materialism , Santayana holds matter as the "primordial existential flux" and believes it can be, at least in some sense, known.
His conception of matter is similar to Spinoza 's substance; matter has no purpose, but constitutes the limitations of what can be. Humans can know matter only from a distance, symbolically:. Thus, while Santayana reveres and deeply respects science and believes it useful for everyday experiences , he does not deify it in the way many other philosophers of the 20th century have, and he limits it to a fallible approximation of truth.
