A Contigent being is differentiated from a necessary being in that it admits of, though it does not demand, actualization. It is thus coextensive with possible being. The contingent is that being whose essence does not include existence and which, therefore, does not, as such, demand existence. Humans are contingent beings, while God is a necessary being.
