Познаваемы ли единичные вещи? (Аристотель и Ф. Суарес о единичном)

Вопросы философии. 2016. № 1. С. 119-131.

This article represents an attempt of Francisco Suárez to explain whether cognition of single material entities is possible, and what the order and the status of this knowledge is. Essentially, Suárez offers his own solution to the long-standing problem of “how the knowledge about the singular is possible if the true knowledge can only be about the general?”. The peculiarity of his position is that only such knowledge about the singular should be preferred as an original and therefore a more natural state of the cognitive activity of the soul.
