Review of Metaphysics 54 (4):946-947 (2001)

James South
Marquette University
This latest volume in the long-running Marquette University series Medieval Philosophical Texts in Translation provides students of late medieval, renaissance, and early modern philosophy with an important new resource. While Suárez’s significance in the history of philosophy is well known, his writings have been rather inaccessible to students ignorant of Latin. Of the 54 disputations that constitute his most famous work, the Metaphysical Disputations, only 13 have been translated into English prior to the volume under review. The present volume presents Suárez’s extended discussion of the issue of substantial and accidental forms. In addition to the translation itself, the translators provide a brief introduction, indices, a brief bibliography restricted to works in English as well as basic notes. Most of these notes identify sources and provide basic explication of difficult arguments and technical terms.
