Lullus´ Ars inventiva veritatis (1290) is the third version of the Ars generalis and can be counted among the most outstanding works ever written by him. The book presents a more simplified exposition of the Ars Lulliana by reducing the great number of figures to only four and by offering some new doctrines, such as the one on transcendental points (puncta transcendentia) and correlatives. In addition, Lullus is especially engaged in developing some central questions on theology and philosophy, completely rearranged according to the principles of his Ars. Finally, in a few long passages Lullus indulges in explaining his method and its advantages.

With the publication of this extremely rich text and the already critically edited Ars amativa from the same year, the reader now has a profound insight into the turning point in the development of Lullus´ theological and philosophical thinking.

Jorge Uscatescu Barrón has completed studies in Philosophy (Dr. phil., Freiburg), Classical and Romance Philology (Madrid and Freiburg), and Indology (MA, Freiburg). He won a Humboldt scholarship in 2000-2001. Since 2005 he works at Raimundus-Lullus-Institut and as Privatdozent at the philosophical faculty of the University of Freiburg.

His main research fields are metaphysics (Die Grundartikulation des Seins, Diss. Freiburg, 1991; Würzburg 1992); ethics (La teoría aristotélica de los temples de ánimo, Madrid 1998); aesthetics (Paseo estético por una pinacoteca, Barcelona 2008). Periods: Antiquity (Aristotle), Middle Ages (Lullus) and Second Scholasticism (Suárez), Phenomenology (Heidegger).
