Individuation Holz I 27
Principium individuationis/Negation/Leibniz: the logical aspect as a negation, combined with the ontological aspect as the reason of the individual single being, leads to the world as the sum of discrete individual things whose unity is not a continuum.
Then the name "world" means only the context imagined by us!
This is a nominalistic interpretation, represented by the Renaissance philosopher Marius Nizolius (edited by Leibniz).
LeibnizVsNizolius: "Nizolius tries to convince us that the universal is nothing else but the individual summarized, and that when I say: every human being is a living being, the meaning is: all humans are .. This is true, but it does not follow:
That the general conceptions, the general, is only a totum collectivum (totum collectivum).
Leibniz: there is another kind of the differentiated whole: (totum discretum): the divided (distributivum).
I 28
If both were the same, one would say (falsely): The human race is a living being. "((s) > Distribution).
