Kevin Hector offers this clarification in response to my summary of his Theology Without Metaphysics: God, Language and the Spirit of Recognition:

“A crucial component of what I call ‘essentialist-correspondentist metaphysics’ is that it fits objects into predetermined categories or a predetermined framework. My worry, then, isn’t about ‘essences’ or ‘correspondence,’ per se , but about thinking of God’s (or any other) essence as corresponding to our predetermined conceptions of God. Some reviewers have interpreted me as worrying about essences & correspondence per se , and have therefore ascribed to me some pretty serious inconsistencies. I now wish that I had been clearer & more emphatic in elaborating this point, but it’s only in retrospect that I see how it could have been unclear.”
