    Leibniz on Relations: From (Soft) Reductionism to the Expression of the Universe.Emanuele Costa - 2016 - Journal of Early Modern Studies 5 (1):143-167.
    In this paper, I undertake an analysis of Leibniz’s theory of relations. My main argument focuses on distinguishing the ontological part of this theory from the logical/grammatical part, and showing that several studies of this subject are misplaced. I offer a clarification of the matter, presenting an argument that shows how Leibniz does not provide a unified theory for the two sides of his theory of relations. I proceed to argue about soft and hard reductionism, supporting the former. I show (...)

    Uno Spinoza sistemico: Strumenti per un'interpretazione sistemica del pensiero di Spinoza.Emanuele Costa - 2014 - Rivista di Filosofia Neo-Scolastica 106 (3):525-535.
    In this study, I will attempt a comparison between the philosophy of Spinoza (especially his Ethics) and the systemic philosophy. Firstly, I will analyze the systemic specific terminology; then it will be compared with the Spinozian one, and I will suggest a hypothesis in order to translate Spinoza's terms into systemic ones. Of this hypothesis, I will present the strengths and weaknesses, especially about the notion of 'centralization' of a system and about Spinoza's epistemology.

    Spinoza and Scholastic Philosophy.Emanuele Costa - forthcoming - In Yitzhak Y. Melamed (ed.), Blackwell Companion to Spinoza.
    In the first section of this chapter, I offer an overview of a selected list of Scholastic debates intersecting Spinoza's Cogitata Metaphysica. I highlight how Spinoza consciously intervenes in them, showing a certain awareness of the intricacies of Scholastic discourse. In this first section, I emphasize Spinoza’s interest in three specific problems: the issue of the division of being into “real being” and “being of reason”; the eternity of God and its distinction from duration; and, finally, God’s omnipresence. My aim (...)
