Abstract The Suaretian formulation on the natural law offers one of the most brilliant and accomplished elaborations of the ius-naturalistic tradition. In this article we analyze the keys from which Suarez formulates his proposal, that finds in the concept of freedom its starting point. From the radical and inalienable call to the human being to the exercise of his freedom, Suarez reveals the essence of its elaboration, one of whose consequences would end by decanting -later on- the concept of subjective right. We also pay special attention to the epistemological aspects of its system, which we consider essential to approach a correct understanding of the Suaretian ius-naturalistic proposal. For this purpose, we offer a close comparison between the Suaretian system and the Thomistic epistemology of the natural law.
