4. Governing bodies Theories of governance—of how rule or regulation is accomplished across nations, institutions, and organizations—have long included a focus on the strategies states pursue in seeking to control and develop the bodily capacities of their citizens. In so doing, they raise questions about how states conceptualize the bodies over which they seek to govern, about those aspects of people’s embodied being they value, and about the resistance they may confront when attempting to implement their policies and achieve their aims.

6. The body politic Ethics describes the free man, who has risen to the higher levels of cognition, mastered his passions, and reached understanding of himself and the world. The populace, however, do not live as free men. They are led by imagination, and remain ignorant of the blessedness that comes through knowledge. At the same time men live in society, and the power of each of them is increased by their association.

Characteristica universalis , logical calculus, and mathematics characteristica universalis , that is, a universal system of signs designed to eliminate the ambiguity of natural language. As well as benefiting theoretical sciences, this agreed system of signs would have constituted a formal language allowing the peaceful resolution of all manner of controversies: hence its immediate practical utility. This project, which from 1679 progressed into the development of a logical calculus, was meant to play a pivotal role in Leibniz’s efforts toward reconciliation at a time of enormous religious, political, and intellectual upheaval. Over and above the provision of a means of
