Dialogue 51 (3):467-483 (2012)
I propose a novel compatibilist interpretation of Leibnizone applying to immaterial monads, the other to corporeal substances. Although corporeal substances derive their status as basic from their dominant monads, they are nevertheless fully real, unified, and genuinely capable of acting. This perspective respects Leibniz’s idealist tendencies and his commitment to the reality of bodies without attributing inconsistency to his considered views.
