Arabic term or phrase: وارداً على الماهية
قوله: (كل اسم الخ) لاحظ في التعريف كونه ضابطاً فأدخل فيه كل التي للأفراد. وليس حداً حقيقياً وارداً على الماهية حتى تنافيه كل، لكن اعترض بأنه يشمل نحو: عندي عشرةٌ دراهمَ بتنوين عشرة: واثْنَتَيْ عَشْرَةً أَسْبَاطاً}

that applies to the nature/kind


Explanation:
The term ماهية refers to the nature of an object. It would be useful if you post the sentence that the critic is referencing here, which starts with كل اسم so we can tell what this object is. However, the particular phrase:
وليس حداً حقيقياً وارداً على الماهية حتى تنافيه كل
... and is not a true constraint on the nature of [the object] such that it would be negated/contradicted by "all" ...
