Dr. Victor Salas
Dr. Salas is an Associate Professor of philosophy who specializes in medieval and late scholastic metaphysics. His publications have treated a number of historical figures (viz., Albertus Magnus, Bonaventure, Thomas Aquinas, Duns Scotus, and Francisco Suarez, among others). At present, he is working on a monograph devoted to establishing the claim that Francisco Suárez's metaphysics constitutes a form of Christian existentialism. Upon completion of that project, he plans to explore further the nature of Jesuit scholastic metaphysics (in general) in terms of the relationship between, on the one hand, analogy and univocity, and on the other, transcendentality and supertranscendentality. Here, the goal is to determine the nature and limits of Jesuit scholastic metaphysics.
