Particulars I 80
Particular/Leibniz: each particular contains the whole in such a way that it "depicts" the effects of the connection with all others in itself.
The one from which the particular is deduced must be contained in it; otherwise it would not be deducible. Deduction is only conclusive if the deduced predicates prove to be included in the subject according to the principle of identity.
Double inclusion: the particular in the whole and the whole in the particular.
Holz: dialectical relationship of unity and plurality.
