This chapter deals with the theory of beings of reason of Bartolomeo Mastri (1602-73) and Bonaventura Belluto (1600-76). Mastri and Belluto were two Italian Franciscan Conventuals and self-professed Scotists. They take up beings of reason at two occasions, first in their Disputations of Organon (1628) and then again in Disputations of Metaphysics (1646). This chapter deals only with their theory as it was presented in the former work. The chapter is divided into three parts. The first part discusses Mastri’s and Belluto’s views about the existence and actuality of beings of reason; the second discusses their views about the “formality” of beings of reason; and the third summarizes their views and compares them with those of Suárez. It is argued that Mastri and Belluto develop a theory of beings of reason that in many ways improves on the theory of Suárez.
