Luis de Lossada (1681–1748) was a Spanish Jesuit theologian and philosophical writer.
His first publication was the "Vida y virtudes del P.G. Dutari" (1720). One year later he published his "Institutiones dialecticae", commonly styled "Summulae". This book was an introduction to his "Cursus philosophici Regalis Collegii Salmanticensis, in tres partes divisus", which he published in 1724 (last edition, 10 vols., Barcelona, 1883). It discusses all the branches of philosophy.
Lossada generally follows Suarez, though in some points he departs from his master. Urráburu was an admirer of Lossada's "egregium et gravissimum cursum" (Institutiones philosophicae, I, 8777), and followed him very closely.
The satirical vein in Lossada's works led him to be credited with José Francisco de Isla's novel Fray Gerundio de Campazas. Lossada and Isla wrote together the amusingly absurd work La juventúd triunfante.
