Abstract

The article consists of two parts. The main part presents a translation into Russian of the “Disputation VI” from Francisco Suárez’ “Metaphysical Disputations”; the supplementary part contains a brief introductive article. The article provides some biographical information about Suárez (1548–1617), offers a brief description of his philosophical heritage and situates his place in the scholastic philosophical landscape of his time. There then follows a brief discussion of the structure of the “Metaphysical Disputations” (Disputationes Metaphysicae) and its significance in the history of scholastic philosophical tradition. The “Metaphysical Disputations” is a systematically arranged treatise comprising 54 disputations concerning principal metaphysical questions; it was published in two volumes in Salamanca in 1597. This work by Suarez is the most significant treatise in metaphysics in the entire scholastic philosophy of the first half of the XVII c. The “Metaphysical Disputations” have defined scholastic metaphysical thought for a century ahead and constituted a model work, referred to by every scholar studying metaphysical problems even if they belonged to a rival scholastic tradition. Publishing the Russian translation of the sixth disputation continues the work on translating the “Metaphysical Disputations” which started ten years ago, in 2007 with editing the translation of the first five Disputations. In the sixth Disputation Suarez analyzes the formal or essential unity of being as well as universal unity. It is in the sixth Disputation that issues related to the well-known debate on universals are discussed — here Suarez presents and considers in detail the principal scholastic viewpoints regarding this matter. Due to the size of the Disputation, its text is published in parts in several consecutive issues of the journal. The translation by G. V. Vdovina is accompanied by a vast commentary by V. L. Ivanov.

Keywords
