2. From humours to cells: components of mind The widespread occurrence of the ‘surgical’ technique of trepanation, the removal of parts of skull to expose the brain, in early civilizations suggests that ancient cultures recognized the brain as a critical organ.

4. Possible worlds and fundamental principles characteristica universalis and the scientia generalis ultimately rested on his conviction that logic is a mirror of the structure of reality. In his view, the principles which govern thought were also the principles that govern reality. In turn, reality meant for Leibniz first and foremost God, the eternal and infinite Being encompassing all perfections.
