Leibniz and degrees of perception

Journal of the History of Philosophy 19 (4):447-479 (1981)
Abstract
An examination of leibniz's doctrines of expressive degrees of perception suggest on textual grounds that representations are characterized as more or less 'distinct' or 'confused' in three different senses, Corresponding to the scope of content represent"ed", The degree of awareness accompanying the represent"ing" of that content, And the internal articulation of the idea expressed by such a representation. Following leibniz's rationalistic strategy of explaining representation in terms of inference permits a unified interpretation of these varieties of distinctness of perception and ideas and hence of the phenomena they explain: causal interaction, Sensations and sensory phantasm, And understanding
