He makes use of this definition to explain Leibniz’s notions of individuation, kin and his contrast among person components and aggregates in addition to the suggestion of natural contributors, that have a nested constitution to infinity. Nachtomy concludes that Leibniz’s definition of a potential person as a software of motion is helping clarifying the team spirit and straightforwardness of nested members.
