Leibniz. Correspondence 1I'ith Arnauld. 511) Thus, the world was determined by its substances and the substances were determined by 'their' world. Both of them, world and substances were in accord with and determined by each other, but they did not depend on one another. Later, in the 1690s, Leibniz would denominate the individual substances as 'monads' and underscore this substance-world relation by his claim that monads are devoid of windows. since each monad is a mirror of one and the same real world.

Leibniz wrote in § 21 of his Discourse on Metaphysics: "If the mechanical laws depended upon geometry alone without metaphysics, the phenomena would be entirely different. '" (Leibniz, Discours, (563). This meant that in Leibniz' scheme the laws of nature were the manifestations of God's wisdom and choice. Additionally, the changes in the world were not arbitrary, but followed a general economy. Thus, the constitution of the laws was such that they could harbour God's wisdom, and this wisdom was manifest in the ways the general laws of nature acted.
