Can anything logically be immaterial in any of the three senses of the term distinguished by Scotus? His first definition, using the notion of dependence, seems not to work. The second and third, using extension and abstractness, do not provide necessary conditions of immateriality, and do not distinguish different senses of the term. But being non-spatial is indeed a sufficient condition of being immaterial, and I argue that there could be non-spatial and therefore immaterial existents.
