Author’s Abstract

  1. Causation1 was an important topic of philosophical reflection during the 17th Century. This reflection centred around certain particular problems about causation2, one of which was the problem of causation3 between mind and body. The doctrine of the PreEstablished Harmony is Leibniz's response to the problem of causation4 between mind and body.
  2. In this chapter I shall:
    1. explain the mind-body problem,
    2. explain Leibniz’s Pre-Established Harmony and
    3. assess Leibniz’s case for Pre-Established Harmony.
