Filippo Fabri coinceived himself as a follower of Scotus promoting the latter's positions in the contemporary milieu. He advocated a conception of metaphysics built on five pillars: transcendental being is a formalitas; transcendental being is the subject of metaphysics; transcendental being virtually contains everything that metaphysics deals with; possible theoretical sciences are four, but only three of them are viable for human beings; metaphysics does not absorb the remaining theoretical sciences. Fabri's position appears simple, yet it hides a number of critical issues; examining them allows us to qualify the variant of Scotism supported by Fabri as a strongly realist one and suggests the reasons why other Scotists propounded different readings of the position of Scotus.
