  3. Localizing Violations of the Principle of Sufficient Reason - Leibniz on the Modal Status of the PSR.Sebastian Bender - forthcoming - Journal of Modern Philosophy.
    The Principle of Sufficient Reason (PSR)—the principle that everything has a reason—plays a central role in Leibniz’s philosophical system. It is rather difficult, however, to determine what Leibniz’s attitude towards the modal status of the PSR is. The prevailing view is that Leibniz takes the PSR to be true necessarily. This paper develops a novel interpretation and argues that Leibniz’s PSR is a contingent principle. It also discusses whether a merely contingent PSR can do the metaphysical heavy lifting that Leibniz (...)

    This paper is a new translation and interpretation of the essay by Leibniz which has come to be known as “Leibniz’s Philosophical Dream.” Leibniz used many different literary styles throughout his career, but “Leibniz’s Philosophical Dream” is unique insofar as it combines apparent autobiography with a dreamscape. The content is also somewhat surprising. The essay is reminiscent of Plato, insofar as Leibniz describes a transition from existence in a cave to a more enlightened mode of being outside of it. But, (...)

  7. Das Mônadas de Leibniz À Educação Estética de Schiller.Roberison Wittgenstein Dias Silveira - 2019 - Filosofia E Educação 11 (1):156-182.
    Partindo da proposta ontológica de Leibniz, a ideia de perfeição dá origem à discussão estética germânica. O grande questionamento é se o gosto está ligado a uma concepção de perfeição inerente à realidade ou se é o resultado da dinâmica dos sentidos, responsáveis pelas sensações. Reformulando a concepção estética moderna, Kant não concebe nenhuma validade de coisa-em-si para o gosto, ele não está nas coisas nelas mesmas, mas antes na maneira de operar da faculdade de julgar reflexiva. Reconhecendo esta nova (...)

  16. Leibniz’s Appropriation of Spinoza’s Argument Against Mind-Body Causation.Matteo Favaretti Camposampiero - 2021 - The Leibniz Review 31:35-57.
    In a 1687 letter to Arnauld, Leibniz draws on an argument against mind-body causation that is reminiscent of one from Spinoza’s Ethics. According to this argument, mind-body causation is impossible because of the lack of proportion between thoughts and motions. This paper aims to shed light on Leibniz’s use of Spinoza’s argument by reconstructing both its internal structure and its development in Leibniz’s later works. In particular, the reconstruction focuses on the new version of this argument that Leibniz adopts against (...)

  17. Why the World Is One: Leibniz on the Unity of the Actual World.Donald Rutherford - 2021 - The Leibniz Review 31:5-34.
    Leibniz denies that the actual world possesses the per se unity of a substance. Instead, he seems to hold, the world is limited to the mind-dependent unity of an aggregate. Against this answer, criticized by Kant in his Inaugural Dissertation, I argue that for Leibniz the unity of the actual world is not grounded simply in God’s perception of relations among created substances but in the common dependence of those substances on a unitary cause. First, the actual world is one (...)

    The transition from the exclusive use of words to the predominant use of symbols in mathematics continued for centuries, but by the seventeenth century it turned out to be explosive. This phenomenon became known as the “symbolic revolution” in mathematics. One of its main outcomes was the discovery of mathematical analysis almost simultaneously and independently by Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. To both scientists their discovery served as the basis for far-reaching philosophical generalizations. For Leibniz, it led to the (...)

    This article deals with an alternative interpretation of syllogistics, different from the classical one: an intensional one, in which subject and predicate are not associated with a set of individuals but a set of attributes. The authors of the paper draw attention to the fact that this approach was first proposed by Leibniz in works on logical calculus, which for a long time remained in the shadow of his other philosophical works. Currently, the intensional approach is gaining more and more (...)

    The way Leibniz applied his philosophy to mathematics has been the subject of longstanding debates. A key piece of evidence is his letter to Masson on bodies. We offer an interpretation of this often misunderstood text, dealing with the status of infinite divisibility in nature, rather than in mathematics. In line with this distinction, we offer a reading of the fictionality of infinitesimals. The letter has been claimed to support a reading of infinitesimals according to which they are logical fictions, (...)

    Leibniz’s metaphysics has been cited as a source of the dynamic and organic worldview of romantic Naturphilosophie. This chapter evaluates that claim by examining two distinct lineages of Leibniz’s metaphysical conception of dynamic appetition. On one hand, by demonstrating the existence of a “vis viva” in inanimate objects and by ascribing two distinct powers—perception and appetition—to all plants and animals as well as to his incorporeal “monads,” Leibniz seemed to restore force to physics and experience and intentionality to animals.

    In the controversy that arose between Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz and Georg Ernst Stahl following the publication of the latter’s Theoria medica vera, both theoreticians strove to distance themselves from what they took to be the classical conception of the vegetative soul, while relating and partly reducing their opponent’s doctrine to it. I shall first attempt to establish their respective meanings for such a soul and the reasons why they would challenge the relevance of that notion for physiology. I shall then (...)

This may be due to the prevalent championing of his optimistic views on the continual progress of humanity, which seem to contradict the notion of eternal return. Walter Benjamin and Gilles Deleuze both put forward concepts of eternal return that form part of their respective critiques of historical progress, yet these have rarely been read in conjunction with their views on (...)

  32. Incompatibilism and the Principle of Sufficient Reason in Kant’s Nova Dilucidatio.Aaron Wells - 2022 - Journal of Modern Philosophy 4 (1:3):1-20.
    The consensus is that in his 1755 Nova Dilucidatio, Kant endorsed broadly Leibnizian compatibilism, then switched to a strongly incompatibilist position in the early 1760s. I argue for an alternative, incompatibilist reading of the Nova Dilucidatio. On this reading, actions are partly grounded in indeterministic acts of volition, and partly in prior conative or cognitive motivations. Actions resulting from volitions are determined by volitions, but volitions themselves are not fully determined. This move, which was standard in medieval treatments of free (...)

    The philosophical idea of perspective draws on two different cultural techniques of representation: on the one hand, the central perspective painting technique of a fictitious three-dimensionality that works with geometric projection from the perspective of the viewer in front of the picture. On the other hand, the cartographic principle of knowledge visualizations in the form of maps, diagrams, and schemas, which shows two-dimensional structural images without fictitious three-dimensionality from a bird’s eye perspective. The central perspective representation embodies the first-person perspective, (...)

The problem of organic order is also one of the major themes that characterize the transition from early modern philosophy and its scholastic traditions to the Enlightenment. In this article, both transitions are part of a single historic change that is related to the notion of organismic unity. Charles Bonnet, Spinoza and Leibniz are part of this historic change.

    The paper is aimed to show the specific critical meaning of the concept of ius naturale that Leibniz delineates in a critical essay on Pufendorf's theory of natural justice published in 1706. Leibniz's criticism of Pufendorf has an »exoteric« character and follows a »protreptic« aim. First, Leibniz discusses Pufendorf's theory starting from representations of the common sense based on the authority of the revealed religion. Nevertheless, Leibniz's final aim is not to justify the religious authority but, on the contrary, to (...)

    The object of this investigation is the constitution of the modern notion of substance on the basis of the concepts – inherited from the late antiquity and the middle ages – radical contingency / existence, infinity and representation. The evolution of this constellation of concepts crystallizes historically in the idea of reality as a structured whole, a specifically modern idea that cannot be found as such in previous philosophical contexts. It is then shown that the philosophical project of the modern (...)

Clarke's theories of freedom, divine activity, the soul, and ethics influenced Joseph Butler, Jonathan Edwards, David Hume, Thomas Reid, and many others. His attacks on the materialism, pantheism, and “atheism” of Thomas Hobbes, Spinoza, John Toland, Anthony Collins, and the deists were interwoven with his defenses of Newtonian natural philosophy, which he was (...)

    This chapter discusses the analogy between bare possibles and imaginary numbers, developed by Leibniz during his Paris years. In this period, he came to realize that imaginary quantities are not impossible in themselves, but they cannot be geometrically represented, for they cannot be ordered within the number line. Similarly, he regarded actual things as belonging to a single ‘series of things’, where each member is connected to every other by relations of position and succession. Bare possibles, on the contrary, can (...)

    The topic of my paper is the virtual controversy between Leibniz and Lockeover concepts and ideas. At the end of the 17th century John Locke made a crucial contribution to semantics and philosophy: An Essay Concerning Human Understanding. The work represents a decisive turning point for the discussion about ideas and innatism. Indeed, Locke’s aim was to dismantle the Cartesian theory according to which ideas are innate in our soul. Against this onto-epistemological thesis, Locke maintains that all our knowledge starts (...)
