  Why we need to bring Leibniz out of the closet if progress is to be made Materialism, the philosophy that the universe is made only of matter,and nothing else, is the basic philosophy of science. So Idealism, the philosophy thatonly ideas, not matter, are real, seems to be a fantasy world. But materialism as a total philosophy, and not idealism, is uite limited.It cannot e!plain perception consciousness, the overall governance of the universeor of the brain. In order to understand these, hence consciousness, we must follow the pioneering lead of Leibniz, the only relatively modern, logical,and comprehensive Idealist philosopher" http"##plato.stanford.edu#entries#leibniz$mind# http"##en.wi%ipedia.org#wi%i#Idealism &hus Bertrand 'ussell, having written a boo% on the logic of Leibniz, abandoned Leibnizon his horrfying discovery of the implications of Idealism $$ that yet even logically,there can only be a single perceiver and a single governor of the universe. (oucan)t have two %ings in a %ingdom, nor two perceptions at the same time. So 'ussell became a materialist, a philosophy that has no provision for e!perience or the perceptions of the first person singular *which is consciousness+. &hus to understand the governance of the universe or consciousness or perception, we must accept Idealism as a valid philosophy overall, while we can still accept materialism as valid within the range of science*the range of matter+. But we must let go of any possibility of overall governance. r. 'oger B -lough IS& *ret.+ /0#0#12223See my Leibniz site athttp"##independent.academia.edu#'oger-lough
