    Cartesian Metaphysics: The Scholastic Origins of Modern Philosophy.Jorge Secada - 2000 - Cambridge University Press.
    This is the first book-length study of Descartes's metaphysics to place it in its immediate historical context, the Late Scholastic philosophy of thinkers such as Suárez against which Descartes reacted. Jorge Secada views Cartesian philosophy as an 'essentialist' reply to the 'existentialism' of the School, and his discussion includes careful analyses and original interpretations of such central Cartesian themes as the role of scepticism, intentionality and the doctrine of the material falsity of ideas, universals and the relation between sense and (...)

    Descartes y la Escolástica.Jorge Secada - 1995 - Areté. Revista de Filosofía 7 (2):301 - 330.
    Descartes escribió que "no debemos nunca preguntar si algo existe al menos que ya conozcamos que es". Los comentaristas le han prestado poca atención a esta doctrina. Se trata, sin embargo, de una pieza medular en la metafísica cartesiana. Además, contiene una clave para la comprensión de las relaciones filosóficas entre Descartes y sus predecesores escolásticos. Este trabajo articula la doctrina esencialista de Descartes, contrastándola con el existencialismo de los aristotélicos. Finalmente, el trabajo responde afirmativamente a la pregunta, ¿le fue (...)
