Leibniz’ starting point was a n integral transformation he found in Pascal’s work and stripped of its geometrical clothing. The gist of Leibniz’ efforts was the thorough algebraisation of calculus. The result was a n easy and prolific formalism, more practical than Newton’s, and rapidly accepted by most creative mathematicians. : Technique versus metaphysics in the calculus.

P’s . . S’s aren’t un-P’s . . Some S are P. P’s . . S’s aren’t P’s . . Some S are not P. All four categoricals are about (all) the S’s. I n A , P is affirmed, in E , P , its contrary, is affirmed. I shall therefore say that E contrafirms what A affirms. I n I , the cont,rary of P is denied of the S’s. I shall say that I contradenies A . I n 0, P is denied. The two fundamental modes of predication are affirmation and denial. A and E are affirmations, I and 0 are denials. But since either a term or its contrary may be affirmed or denied we get four logically distinct ways of predicating a term.
