The “Death” of Monads: G. W. Leibniz on Death and Anti-Death

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/konferenshandlingKapitelVetenskaplig


According to Leibniz, there is no death in the sense that the human being or animal is destroyed completely. This is due to his metaphysical pluralism which would suffer if the number of substances decreased. While animals transform into other animals after “death”, human beings are rewarded or punished of their behavior in this life. This paper presents a comprehensive account of how Leibniz thought the “death” to take place and discusses his often unclear views on the life after death. I will also present a new, naturalistic reading of Leibniz’s views on afterlife.
