Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Completeness, philosophy: A) Systems are complete, if all valid statements are provable. B) The question of the completeness of a description is always concerned with specific purposes of this description within the framework of a theory which applies to the described objects. It is a peculiarity in the case of particle physics that the complete description of elementary particles does not allow the differentiation of other particles of the same type. See also incompleteness, determinateness, determination, distinction, indistinguishability.

Holz I 73
Complete concept/Leibniz: contains all possible conditions and determinations for the existence of a particular being, is thus identical with the concept of the world as a whole.
Only perceptible to an infinite mind.

Overlapping general: for the infinite mind, the distinction between truths of reason and truths of facts is again invalid: for him, everything is a truth of reason, or just as well one can say, everything is for him a factual truth!
For the finite mind, however, the truth of reason is the opposite of the truth of facts.
Overlapping general: the one includes its opposite.
