This chapter deals with Suárez’s views on the division of beings of reason and provides an overview and evaluation of Suárez’s entire theory. The chapter is divided into five parts. The first part discusses Suárez’s views on whether the traditional division of beings of reason into negation, privation, and relation is exclusive; the second deals with the question whether this division is exhaustive; the third concerns his position on the commonalities and differences between negations and privations; the fourth adds a few words about relations of reason; and the final part summarizes Suárez’s theory of beings of reason in general and identifies some problems and objections this theory faces. The question of the division of beings of reason is taken up in sections 3 to 6 of Suárez’s Disputation 54.

Keywords:   division of beings of reason, negation, privation, relation of reason, Objectualism, Francisco Suárez
