In this paper I shall discuss Bonaventure’s issue about the principle of individuation, focusing on distinction 3 of Commentarius in secundum librum Sententiarum. First of all, I will offer a double formulation of the problem of individuation: it was thought as the problem of numerical distinction of a specific essence. Secondly, I will focus my attention on Bonaventure’s statement about individuation: according to the theologian, the individuation is the result of the actual conjunction of matter and form. However this does not represent a proper answer to the traditional problem of individuation. The Franciscan thinker’s purpose is to offer a reconsideration of the meaning of ‘individuation’, which means ‘substantiality’: the numerical difference is a mere consequence, an accidental property, of the mutual appropriation of the substantial principles, namely matter and form. For that reason I will conclude that, from Bonaventure’s perspective, the problem of numerical distinction is a really pseudo-problem.
