Many-Minded Leibniz's Many Minds

Source : Wikipedia

The idea of “panpsychism” has recently become fashionable again. It holds that minds, or mind-like things, are more pervasive and ontologically primitive than analytic philosophers and philosophers of science used to think. A major stimulus to the resurgence of panpsychism has been the apparent impossibility of giving a plausible evolutionary account of the mental. It is striking, however, how much of the new panpsychism goes over ground already well explored by Leibniz. This talk, written for a forthcoming collection of papers on panpsychism, is about Leibniz’s right to be numbered among the panpsychists.
