The Present Is Big With The Future • Comment 2

My interest in this theme of Leibniz goes back to a time when I began exploring generalized measures of determination and qualitative analogues of differential calculus — doctrines of absolute determinism or predestination had long ago loosened their hold on … Continue reading

The Present Is Big With The Future • Comment 1

Re: Peirce List • John Sowa Re: Peirce List • Jon Awbrey Here is a passage from Leibniz where he half decrypts half encrypts the big idea sparking his discovery of the differential calculus. The Present Is Big With The … Continue reading

The Present Is Big With The Future

Now that I have proved sufficiently that everything comes to pass according to determinate reasons, there cannot be any more difficulty over these principles of God’s foreknowledge.  Although these determinations do not compel, they cannot but be certain, and they … Continue reading
