Chapter Summary

Heidegger is neither the first nor the only one at the beginning of the last century to restore to ontology its scholarly nobility. If one seeks to comprehend the scope and the consequences that could result from Heidegger's new elaboration of the question of being, thus rejecting by the same stroke the scholarly discussions in the prehistory that oppose 'Neothomism' and 'Suarezianism', one must apprehend the Heideggerian Seinsfrage (question of being) in the true context of its elaboration. The Heideggerian Seinsfrage is primarily a question of the meaning of being, or better yet, of the meaning of 'to be' through the comprehension of being. Certainly, the Heideggerian treatment is radically different from the rather masterly attempt of the Suárezian 'recapitulation', insofar as the emphasis is placed immediately on the 'gründsätliche Verlegenheit' (fundamental perplexity), which is metaphysics itself.

Keywords: Francisco Suárez; Heidegger; metaphysics; Neothomism; Suarezianism
