G.W. Leibniz on Generality - Dictionary of Arguments

Holz I 128
Cross-General/in itself/Leibniz/König /Holz: the "in itself" is class of itself and its opposite, the appearance.
I 129
KantVs: then the phenomenon may be still different from what it is appearance - solution/Leibniz: the world guarantees by perception that appearance equals "in itself":
1. As a whole, but always under a different perspective
2. Spatially as a being separated of different perceptions
3. Time as a sequence of perceptions
Pointe: the difference between in itself and appearance is the difference of the "in itself" itself. - The appearance is not lifted against the "in itself".
I 130
World: expresses itself always as "Sosein" of a single Monad. - ((s) appearance, not the totality, this should include all monads).
>Phenomena/Leibniz, >World/Leibniz.
