Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz

German philosopher, mathematician, logician, mechanics, physics, lawyer, historian, linguist and inventor.
If we were magically shrunk and put into someone's brain while she was thinking, we would see all the pumps, pistons, gears and levers working away and we would be able to describe the workings completely, in mechanical terms, thereby completely describing the thought processes of the brain. But that description would not contain any mention of thought! It would contain nothing but descriptions of pumps, pistons, levers!More Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

These principles have given me a way of explaining naturally the union or rather the mutual agreement [conformité] of the soul and the organic body. The soul follows its own laws, and the body likewise follows its own laws; and they agree with each other in virtue of the pre-established harmony between all substances, since they are all representations of one and the same universe.More Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
