Small dots enclose material that has been added, but can be read as though it were part of the original text. Occasional bullets, and also indenting of passages that are not quotations, are meant as aids to grasping the structure of a sentence or a thought. Every four-point ellipsis. My topic here will be the monad, which is just a simple substance. By calling it simple I mean that it has no parts, though it can be a part of something composite.
The Hanoverian period Leibniz continued his work but was still without an income-producing position.
John Frederick, a convert to Catholicism from Lutheranism in , had become duke of Hanover in He appointed Leibniz librarian, but, beginning in February , Leibniz solicited the post of councillor, which he was finally granted in He also developed a water pump run by windmills, which ameliorated the exploitation of the mines of the Harz Mountains , and he worked in these mines as an engineer frequently from to Leibniz is considered to be among the creators of geology because of the observations he compiled there, including the hypothesis that the Earth was at first molten.
These many occupations did not stop his work in mathematics: In March he perfected the binary system of numeration i. He was also working on his dynamics and his philosophy , which was becoming increasingly anti-Cartesian.
France was growing more intolerant at home—from to there were harsh persecutions of the Protestants that paved the way for the revocation of the Edict of Nantes on October 18, —and increasingly menacing on its frontiers, for as early as , despite the reigning peace, Louis XIV took Strasbourg and laid claim to 10 cities in Alsace.
France was thus becoming a real danger to the empire, which had already been shaken on the east by a Hungarian revolt and by the advance of the Turks, who had been stopped only by the victory of John III Sobieski , king of Poland , at the siege of Vienna in Leibniz served both his prince and the empire as a patriot. He suggested to his prince a means of increasing the production of linen and proposed a process for the desalinization of water; he recommended classifying the archives and wrote, in both French and Latin, a violent pamphlet against Louis XIV.
During this same period Leibniz continued to perfect his metaphysical system through research into the notion of a universal cause of all being, attempting to arrive at a starting point that would reduce reasoning to an algebra of thought.
He also continued his developments in mathematics; in he was concerned with the proportion between a circle and a circumscribed square and, in , with the resistance of solids.
His job was to prove, by means of genealogy , that the princely house had its origins in the House of Este , an Italian princely family, which would allow Hanover to lay claim to a ninth electorate. In search of these documents, Leibniz began travelling in November Going by way of southern Germany, he arrived in Austria, where he learned that Louis XIV had once again declared a state of war; in Vienna, he was well received by the Emperor; he then went to Italy.
Everywhere he went, he met scientists and continued his scholarly work, publishing essays on the movement of celestial bodies and on the duration of things.
He returned to Hanover in mid-July His efforts had not been in vain. In October Ernest Augustus obtained the electoral investiture. Until the end of his life, Leibniz continued his duties as historian.
He did not, however, restrict himself to a genealogy of the House of Brunswick; he enlarged his goal to a history of the Earth, which included such matters as geological events and descriptions of fossils.
He searched by way of monuments and linguistics for the origins and migrations of peoples; then for the birth and progress of the sciences, ethics , and politics; and, finally, for the elements of a historia sacra.
In this project of a universal history, Leibniz never lost sight of the fact that everything interlocks.
Even though he did not succeed in writing this history, his effort was influential because he devised new combinations of old ideas and invented totally new ones. In De Rerum Originatione On the Ultimate Origin of Things developed a cosmological argument for the existence of God, attempting to prove that the ultimate origin of things can be none other than God.
All of these writings opposed Cartesianism, which was judged to be damaging to faith. Plans for the creation of German academies followed in rapid succession.
With the help of the electress Sophia Charlotte, daughter of Ernest Augustus and soon to become the first queen of Prussia January , the German Academy of Sciences in Berlin was founded on July 11, Leibniz found himself confronted with an uneducated, boorish prince, a reveller who kept him in the background.
Leibniz took advantage of every pretext to leave Hanover ; he was constantly on the move; his only comfort lay in his friendship with Sophia Charlotte and her mother, Princess Sophia.
Le monadi non hanno finestre, attraverso le quali qualcosa possa entrare o uscire. Ognuno di noi proietta un suo mondo.
La monade quindi rappresenta in se stessa tutto l'universo. Esiste quindi una gerarchia di monadi che dipende dalle caratteristiche della percezione delle monadi. Le anime agiscono secondo le leggi delle cause finali, per appetizioni, fini e mezzi.
I corpi agiscono secondo le leggi delle cause efficienti o dei movimenti.
Ma i due regni, quello delle cause efficienti e quello delle cause finali, sono in armonia fra loro. Eppure le monadi comunicano.
Ogni monade infatti compie ogni atto della sua esistenza nel momento stesso in cui le altre monadi compiono l'atto corrispondente. Quindi il rapporto ideale delle monadi dipende dalla maggiore o minore perfezione delle monadi.
