Atomism Holz I 94
Atomism/difference/Leibniz: the difference of the substances is an external one, the world manifests itself in the action of reciprocal causation relations of assumed substances A, B, C, etc.
((s) difference is external because only recognizable with respect to others.)
This is the model of atomism.
But in a modified form it is also the model of transcendental unity in Kant.

World/Kant: Substances which interact with one another form "the correlation of the phenomena according to the necessary rules, i.e. laws." But just as an idea!
