  • The correctness and relevance of the modal ontological argument.Andrzej Biłat - 2021 - Synthese 199 (1):2727-2743.
    This paper deals with some metaphilosophical aspects of the modal ontological argument originating from Charles Hartshorne. One of the specific premises of the argument expresses the idea that the existence of God is not contingent. Several well-known versions of the argument have been formulated that appeal to different ways of clarifying the latter. A question arises: which of the formally correct and relevant versions is proper or basic? The paper points to some criteria of formal correctness, and distinguishes two types (...)

  • Simples, Representational Activity, and the Communication Among Substances: Leibniz and Wolff on Pre-Established Harmony.Gastón Robert - 2018 - History of Philosophy & Logical Analysis 21 (1):92-128.
    This article aims to make further progress in revising the standard account of Wolff’s philosophy as a popularisation and systematisation of Leibniz’s doctrines. It focuses on the topic of the communication among substances and the metaphysics of simples and activity underlying it. It is argued that Wolff does not accept the pre-established harmony in its orthodox Leibnizian version. The article explains Wolff’s departure from Leibniz’s PEH as stemming from his rejection of Leibniz’s construal of the activity of every simple as (...)

  • Rationality at Stake: Leibniz and the Beginnings of Newton’s Era.Michał Heller - 2016 - Philosophical Problems in Science 61:5-22.
    Our present knowledge in the field of dynamical systems, information theory, probability theory and other similar domains indicates that the human brain is a complex dynamical system working in a strong chaotic regime in which random processes play important roles. In this environment our mental life develops. To choose a logically ordered sequence from a random or almost random stream of thoughts is a difficult and energy consuming task. The only domain in which we are able to do this with (...)

  • Leibniz’s Critique of Infinite Numbers and its Impact in His Metaphysics of Bodies.Rodolfo E. Fazio - unknown
    In this paper we study the impact of Leibniz’s critique of infinite numbers in his metaphysics of bodies. After presenting the relation that the German philosopher establishes in his youth between the notions of body, extension and infinite quantities, we analyze his thoughts on the paradoxes of the infinite numbers and we claim that his defense of the inconsistency of such numbers is an inflexion point in his conception of body and mark the beginning of his offensive against the res (...)

  • Leibniz y Boyle sobre la noción de naturaleza: un debate póstumo acerca de los fundamentos del mecanicismo en "De ipsa natura".Rodolfo Fazio - forthcoming - Filosofia Unisinos:1-13.
    En el presente trabajo estudiamos el concepto de naturaleza en Leibniz y Boyle y la fundamentación que a partir de dicha noción cada uno ofrece del mecanicismo. De modo más específico, proponemos que De ipsa natura de Leibniz se articula como un debate póstumo con A Free Enquiry into the Vulgarly Received Notion of Nature de Boyle, siendo el objetivo inicial del texto leibniziano revisar la concepción boyleana de naturaleza y ofrecer una fundamentación alternativa del mecanicismo que permita introducir una (...)
