Some Remarks on the Object of Metaphysics according to Francisco Suarez

Danilo Facca

The question of the unity of the metaphysics was among the outstanding and most discussed in the XVIth and XVIIth century both by scholastic philosophers and philologists-humanists interested primarily to the historical vicissitudes of the Aristotelian text and its reception. The paper highlights the Suarezian attitude towards this topics as a conservative one (in opposition to tendencies splitting metaphysics into ontology and theology), since the Spaniard elaborates a quite complex formula, confirming the unity of the object of metaphysics.
