Abstract

This is the second of four panels on ‘What Is the Matter of/with Medieval Philosophy?’, bringing together papers addressing the subject matter of medieval philosophy, including how subfields of philosophy were demarcated; how philosophy was separated from other disciplines; how medieval philosophy is separated from (and continuous with) ancient and early modern philosophy. This panel on metaphysics brings together three papers on (1) Suarez and the real essence of objects; (2) Suarez on natural distinctions in metaphysical philosophy; and (3) the substance of artifacts in Aquinas.
