Vittorio Morfino. Leibniz or Spinoza: a contemporary alternative

The aim of this text is, on the one hand, to view the opposition between Spinoza and Leibniz not in a metaphysical perspective (i.e., not as the uniqueness of substance against the plurality of monads according to the Hegelian model), but rather on the level of the finite and its internal relations (as monads against modi), and, on the other hand, to lift this opposition out of the context of strictly historiographic problems in order to evaluate its meaning in terms of Wirkungsgeschichte as considered from a theoretical point of view.

 

Keywords: Spinoza, Leibniz, Husserl, Simondon, monadology, intersubjectivity, transindividuality, relation, passion, individuals
