I speculate that this is the best of all possible worlds, for philosophy is the best of humanity, and this world is the best philosophically.

A Quote by David Berlinski on leibniz, algorithm, symbol, and mind

Leibniz endeavored to provide an account of inference and judgment involving the mechanical play of symbols and very little else. The checklists that result are the first of humanity's intellectual artifacts. They express, they explain, and so they ratify a power of the mind. And, of course, they are artifacts in the process of becoming algorithms.
