Gottfried Leibniz

Gottfried Leibniz (1646-1716)

“Bodies act as though, per impossible, there were no souls; and souls act as if there were no bodies, and both act as if each influenced the other.”

  • From Gottfried Leibniz’s Monadology (section 81), translated by Mary Morris and G. H. R. Parkinson in Leibniz: Philosophical Writings (Everyman’s Library, 1934).
