The aim of this paper is to present the methodological and operational bases and the main objectives of the Nouvel Index scolastico-cartésien – which updates  the fundamental work (1913) by Étienne Gilson – and at the same time, to present and illustrate a preview of some entries of the work. This project, which will be completed in the coming months, updates Gilson’s Index not only by enlarging the number of entries present, but also by expanding the scholastic corpus of the authors considered by Gilson, now enlarged (always on the basis of the Gilsonian criterion not of sources, but of ‘possible influences’) outside Thomism, namely, to the Scotist and Occamist traditions. The discover of the influence, direct or indirect, of these two traditions on the constitution of the Cartesian thought has marked, together with the differentiation between Thomism and Suárezism, one of the main contributions of the post-Gilsonian critical literature in the respective fields of research on Descartes and Scholasticism.
