In this review article I discuss the positive contributions of recent Anglo-American Suarez scholarship, but also some of its deficiencies. The overall tendency is always to present Suarez as the last medieval philosopher and to neglect post-Suarezian scholastic culture as a topic worthy of study for its own sake, not just as the background for modern philosophy. This historiographical distortion needs to be overcome if we are to arrive at a more adequate account of the scholastic philosophy of the seventeenth century.
