Abstract I present here a key to reading the work of Jesuit thinker Francisco\n Suarez in the context of the plurality and complexity of modernity. I\n show the main configuration that defines modernity in its hegemonic\n version, as well as its limitations. From there, I propose how Suarez\'s\n work can be understood from the perspective of its own Ignatian and\n Jesuit spiritual framework and in relation to the development of\n modernity. Although a dominant version of modernity has historically\n prevailed, modernity cannot be understood as a uniform process but one\n that has been articulated and expressed in different civilizing missions\n since the Renaissance. One modern way of responding to the\n socio-cultural challenges of the Renaissance was articulated by the\n Society of Jesus. I believe that in light of what I term an "Ignatian\n modernity," we can better understand Suarez\'s intellectual mission, its\n historical virtuality, and the possibilities marginalized by hegemonic\n modernity.
