Leibniz's Systema Iuris - .   Leibniz's Law (that no two things can share all their properties in common) can be expressed in a positive way as follows: if two things are identical, then they share all their properties in common (this metaphysical principle is called the indiscernibility of identicals), and conversely, if two things share all their properties in common, then they are identical (this metaphysical principle. 2. Natural Law Theory Unlike legal positivism, versions of natural-law theory have existed for thousands of years, dating from the ancient world. Again in contrast to legal positivism, such variants have flourished in at least two analytically distinct societies. But now, after somewhat of a . The selections contained in these volumes from the papers and letters of Leibniz are intended to serve the student in two ways: first, by providing a more adequate and balanced conception of the full range and penetration of Leibniz's creative intellectual powers; second, by inviting a fresher approach to his intellectual growth and a clearer perception of the internal strains in his thinking.

Aquinas’s way of stating this point: positive law has as its purpose the common good of the community. Any positive law which conflicts/is inconsistent with either natural law or divine law is not really law at all. Hence, not only is there no moral obligation to obey it, but there is no legal obligation to obey it, either. Augustine, Aquinas. He produced the first binary logical number system, invented calculating machines, stated the physical law of conservation, among other achievements [as if that weren't enough!].

  Leibniz’s conservation of progress is closely related to the Cartesian law of conservation of quantity of motion (and the more familiar law of the conservation of momentum). As Leibniz is at pains to emphasize, however, his law differs from the Cartesian law at least in that it traffics in “signed” velocities rather than scalar speeds. Leibniz' law may refer to: The product rule; General Leibniz rule, a generalization of the product rule; Identity of indiscernibles; See also.
