|Rationalism||Holz I 50
Definition evidence/certainty/a priori/Leibniz: the certainty (the necessity of identical propositions A = B) is based neither on empiricism nor on deduction, but on an a priori insight.
Holz I 50
Rationalism/HolzVsLeibniz: Problem for a philosophy that understands itself "scientifically": this "immediate insight" of so-called final justification leads to a different epistemological level. Danger of an irrationalistic change.
Thus the certainty of the axioms is no longer assured. Leibniz, however, insists on proving them from the "evidence of identity" (with themselves).
