Comments on Daniel Garber's "Metaphysics and Theology: The Role of the Monadology in Leibniz's Essais de Théodicée"
Graduate studies at Western
|Abstract||In his rich and engaging essay, Professor Garber asks most centrally, “…what was the relation between Leibniz’s metaphysical project as set out in the so-called ‘Monadologie’ and the more theological project in the Essais de Théodicée?” His answer is, in short, that there isn’t much of a relationship between these two great works. Furthermore, he takes this result to be evidence of Leibniz’s not being a systematic philosopher in the spirit of Descartes or Spinoza. In these brief comments, I revisit Garber’s two central questions in turn and offer some moderating resistance to both of his conclusions.|
