This editorial is about the idea of an entity. For other makes use of, see Entity (disambiguation).
An entity is something that exists in itself, actually or hypothetically. It require not be of material existence. In particular, abstractions and legal fictions are usually regarded as entities. In general, there is also no presumption that an entity is animate.
