dc.description.abstract This dissertation aims at exploring the developmental story of the metaphysics of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716). I particularly focus upon the texts from 1663 to 1686: Leibniz wrote the Metaphysical Discussion on the Principle of Individuation in 1663, as his bachelor’s thesis and the first philosophical work, and he wrote the Discourse on Metaphysics in 1686. I will focus upon Leibniz’s metaphysics of body, which is also related to his cutting-edge investigations of mathematics and physics. The ontological status of body is an important philosophical topic, as is the relationship of mind and body.
