This chapter examines the debate over the moral questions of Thomistic ontological morality. The first great philosophical dispute concerning the humanity of non-Western peoples took place in Spain. Among the most influential contributors are Charles Lohr, who has devoted many years to an examination of those writers who in the period between 1500 and 1700 produced commentaries on Aristotle; Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda, the most celebrated Spanish Aristotelian commentator of the sixteenth century; Domingo de Soto, author of one of the most important Spanish works on legal theory, De iustitia et iure; Bartolomé de Las Casas, the “Apostle of the Indians”, one of the most recognized names in the intellectual history of colonial Spanish America; Francisco de Vitoria, the father of the School of Salamanca; and Francisco Suárez, the celebrated author of Disputationes metaphysicae.

Keywords:   Spain, Thomism, Aristotle, Charles Lohr, humanity, Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda, Domingo de Soto, Bartolomé de Las Casas, Francisco de Vitoria, Francisco Suárez
