The Leibniz continuity condition, inconsistency and quantum dynamics

Journal of Philosophical Logic 26 (4):377-389 (1997)
A principle of continuity due to Leibniz has recently been revived by Graham Priest in arguing for an inconsistent account of motion. This paper argues that the Leibniz Continuity Condition has a reasonable interpretation in a different, though still inconsistent, class of dynamical systems. The account is then applied to the quantum mechanical description of the hydrogen atom
