The philosopher Gottfried Leibniz said that one of his most important doctrines, and in fact one of the most important doctrines in all of philosophy as well as theology, is that there are no purely extrinsic denominations [NPE hereafter]. The prevailing interpretation of his views is that all extrinsic denominations [roughly relational properties] reduce to intrinsic denominations [roughly non-relational properties]. According to this reductionist view, things only have intrinsic denominations as properties; extrinsic denominations are not genuine properties of things.

This book, however, takes a completely different view, arguing that NPE is actually the claim that extrinsic denominations are properties of the things they denominate. To establish his view, the author examines numerous texts in which Leibniz derives NPE from other of his well-known doctrines, such as his predicate-in-subject principle of truth, the interconnection of all things and the identity of indiscernibles. Plaisted also investigates Leibniz's use of NPE as a premise to establish his claim that each monad expresses the universe. The result is that the author's reading of NPE allows for far more plausible and natural reconstructions of these arguments than does its reductionist counterpart. Finally, by exploring the inferential connections between NPE and these other important Leibnizian doctrines, this work also displays the central place that NPE occupies in Leibniz's philosophy as a whole.
