I have recently completed my PhD at Cambridge. My thesis was an attempt to answer two substantial questions about essential properties: namely, 'what are essential properties' and 'what essential properties are there'. I defend the idea that we can understand essential properties as those sparse properties an object has in every possible world in which it exists, and that if there are any such properties, they are very few and far between.
