A fresh translation and in depth commentary of Leibniz's seminal text the Monadology Lloyd Strickland presents a new translation of the Monadology alongside key parts of the Theodicy and an in depth section by section commentary that explains in detail not just what Leibniz is saying in th. 210517 for me this is kind of two reviews 1 on the work around the work itself the commentary on Leibniz's 'Monadology' and 2 the appendices the 'theodicity' and 'principles of natural grace' i must note i did greatly enjoy reading 1 twice for it is very dense very concise beautifully summarized here with also a running commentary fascinating i give this a five without hesitation1 logical progression is described in point by point summary then ideas he came up with the 'monads' without 'windows' the 'indestructibility of the soul' the 'pre established harmony' the 'ualities' 'preformatism' 'perceptions distinctconfusedlittle' 'substance as mirror of the universe' these and other ideas are particularly clearly explained in the running commentary convincing once i got over tendency of thinking of monads as atomic realities and saw them like dharmas indivisible 'simples' out of which 'complexes' are necessarily built skandas especially liked the definitions of 'a priori' and 'a postiori' in the thought of his time versus how it is defined post Kant not before category versus after empirical but 'proving effects through causes or proving causes through effects'2 unfortunately i was nowhere as interested in his companion works of the appendices they might be considered essential to truly understand the 'Monadology' but as they seem to refer and argue mostly about God about the way our finite world is 'emanation' of infinite goodness etc buttress assertions proofs cosmological and ontological talk on the terrain of Christian theologythought well i once asked a friend pastor if it is possible to be a Christian if you do not believe in divinity of Christ apparently not so is it possibly to agree with Leibniz if you are not Christian i wonder following the 'principle of lightness' otherwise known as Occam's razor well if you do not need god there why add him inso this is a five then a two probably different for a Christian i am impressed with the 'Monadology' itself but not the appendices unfortunately i also once read 'Candide' by Voltaire years ago decades which has a parodic Leibniz character in Pangloss who has the refrain that this is 'the best of all possible worlds' no matter what extensive horrors the characters undergo Leibniz is not to be defined in parody but that uote persists and it is hard to read that in here even when it is much reasonably argued without a smile Tempting Treasures reviews 1 on the work around the work itself the commentary on

E text but also why he says it The sharp focus on the various arguments and other justifications Leibniz puts forward makes possible a deeper and sympathetic understanding of his doctrinesWritten in 1714 the Monadology is widely considered to be the classic statement of Leibniz's mature ph. I didn't touch any of the Theodicy included in the appendix so I can't speak on that The Monadology itself is a fine place to start on the ladder up to Kant because it wasn't written by a philosopher and therefore he didn't want to waste everyone's time Other than the archaic usage of certain terms which had to be cleared up later in the guide for me I grasped pretty much what was being said Monads are the basis for everything and they come in three flavors with God's being the OG and most powerful But that doesn't mean the lesser monads are lacking because while they are powerful in their own way they are just imperfect enough to not be God monads because there can only be one of those naturally Leibniz goes on to clarify that there are soul and body monads and based on rules established earlier they can't directly change or influence each other but rather simultaneously co exist leading to Leibniz's theory of harmony It's this perfectly organized and arranged order of monads that prove that God is perfect good and decisive But that's basically the gist Other interesting topics are discussed like Leibniz' Mill theory which argues against the mechanical properties of perception and also the infinite meta and micro worlds existing above and below our perceptions Yeah pretty straightforward onto the next one
