"Overarching general"/Leibniz/Holz: the truth of reason is the genre which comprises two (and only two) species, namely the truth of reason itself and its opposite, the truths of facts.
For the formal logician, this remains a systematic contradiction: Leibniz makes a distinction between necessary and contingent truths. At the same time he comprehends both of them as analytic.
Holz: in fact, the relationship is not formal, but dialectical.
> Josef König: "The Overarching General" as the basic logical figure of Leibniz's metaphysics, necessary for the inexpressable multiplicity of the world, which can nevertheless be subjected to an order of reason.
