The anonymous author of the dialogue stages two Spanish characters — Francesco di Bargas and Iacobo Casaglia from Malaga: both disciples of a certain Gian Rodrighes (Juan Rodriguez), they discuss the recent publication of a Latin dialogue by Antonio Mainero on the immortality of the soul. Aristotle is often mentioned in the text, which also draws from Alexander of Aphrodisias and Averroes.
