CALL FOR PROPOSALS--Constructing Race: Differentiating Peoples in the Early Modern World, 1400-1700. The Institute of Early American History and Culture will hold a working seminar in spring 1996 on the construction of race and racism in Europe and the Americas, 1400-1700. Scholars in European, African, Latin American, and North American history, anthropology, literature, cultural studies, and related disciplines are invited to submit proposals describing the substance of their subject. Papers expanding these proposals and presented at the seminar may be published in the WILLIAM AND MARY QUARTERLY. Deadline for proposals is October 1, 1995. For full information contact Michael McGiffert, editor, at the Institute, P.O. Box 8781, Williamsburg, VA 23187-8781. Tel.: 804-221-1125. Fax: 804-221-1047. E-mail: mcgiff@mail.wm.edu.


4) MEDIEVAL SUAREZ?

This year we enjoy the appearance of two more English translations of Francisco Suarez's DISPUTATIONES METAPHYSICAE:

Suarez, Francisco, S.J. ON EFFICIENT CAUSALITY: METAPHYSICAL DISPUTATIONS 17, 18, AND 19. Translated by Alfred J. Freddoso. (New Haven: Yale University Press, 1994).

Suarez, Francisco, S.J. ON BEINGS OF REASON (DE ENTIBUS RATIONIS) METAPHYSICAL DISPUTATION LIV. Translated from the Latin with an Introduction and Notes by John P. Doyle. (Milwaukee, Wisconsin: Marquette Univ. Press, 1995).

Such efforts will help make Suarez part of the "history of philosophy" in the English speaking world. Everybody who really wants to understand "early modern" philosophy should read up on Suarez, and the Latin-less now have less and less excuse for not doing so. One minor thing disturbs me: both books are part of series which call themselves MEDIEVAL translation series. Was Suarez a medieval philosopher? Suarez lived from 1548 to 1617. Compare these dates with his contemporaries, Rene Descartes: 1596-1650 and Galileo: 1564-1642. Add to this the fact that he re-invented metaphysics by putting aside Aristotle's ordering of the subject matter. We philosophers need to rethink the canon of "early modern" philosophy and find some room for the EARLY MODERN Latins. These remarks, however, do not remove the obligation on our philosopher- friends to buy (or have your library buy) these books, and to read them!--JC.


5) VIVARIUM: LATE SCHOLASTIC PHILOSOPHY

VIVARIUM 33, No. 1 (May 1995), edited by E.J. Ashworth, is devoted to late-scholastic philosophy (good background for colonial latin american philosophy). Contents: "Late Scholastic Philosophy: Introduction" (E.J. Ashworth); "Jeronimo Pardo on the Necessity of Scientific Propositions" (Jeffrey Coombs); "Smiglecius on entia rationis" (Gino Roncaglia); "Suarez on the Analogy of Being: Some Historical Background" (E.J. Ashworth); "Circularity and the Paduan regressus: From Pietro d'Abano to Galileo Galilei" (William Wallace); "Saccheri's Postulat" (Ignacio Angelelli).
