Today's English

Desideratum: Something that is considered essential or which is highly desired. Literally ''something wanted or needed''.

''Continuing along this line of thought, I'd like to suggest the following desideratum for any formulation of Physicalism: 1. Physicalism should be formulated in such a way as to reject entities such as ghosts.''
-from Philosophy of Mind.
