[Xmca-l] The notion of essences and prototypes



Huw mentioned his interest in transformations of essences, inner form and
external form.
Is the notion of "prototype" involved in these oscillations?  Icons as
symbolizing meaning and in the valuing objects one gives value to its
prototype, meaning "original".
The prototype as "essence"

I am curious if "themes" [such as the prototype of trinity] transfer from
theological to other critical ? forms that may carry a similar "prototype"
