Review of Metaphysics 58 (4):922-923 (2005)

The present volume contains a sixteen-page introduction that briefly sums up Suárez’s life and works, outlines the contents of the Metaphysical Disputations, and then presents a summary of the two disputations translated, which is valuable because of Suárez’s tendency to ramble and to include almost every imaginable detail from the thought of his predecessors. The heart of the volume is the translation of the two disputations; it is followed by a list of persons to whom Suárez alludes and a brief identification of them—an invaluable addition since in many cases most readers would not otherwise know to whom the Jesuit philosopher is referring. The bibliography is particularly helpful in listing the thirteen other disputations that have been translated into English and in providing a select guide to secondary sources for further reading.
