My current interests: I have studied Leibniz’s philosophy with the constant interest in a notion ‘vinculum substantiale’(substantial bond), which he showed a certain jesuit in his later years. Quite a few interpreters have thought this notion has connections with the theories of body, organism and relation between mind and body. While I have certainly agreed with this interpretation, I have thought ‘vinculum substantiale’ could be closely connected with these notions; ‘identity’, ‘individual’, ‘person’, ‘self’. At the same time, currently, I am not a little interested in two topics; 1. Individualistic ideas and the theories of logic and language in the Middle Ages, 2. The problems in contemporary analytical metaphysics, particularly self, identity, modality and ontology.
