English term or phrase: the nature of a triangle or the essence of a dog
Indeed, knowledge is much more than sense perception, for intelligence is the ability to apprehend the intelligible structures of things. What is sensible, such as the temperature of an ice cube or the color of a surface, is not the same as what is intelligible, such as the nature of a triangle or the essence of a dog. But human persons do not grasp the intelligible natures of things immediately, but only indirectly.
