Abstract

The present paper aims to present Fernando Gil’s criticism on Leibniz’ concept of expression, particularly with regard to the idea of an “expressive causality”. Reviewing several Leibnizian concepts as “simple substance”, “force”, “appetition” or “inter-expression”, this paper intends not only to analyze Fernando Gil’s reflection on what the author considers “the aporia of Leibnizian philosophy on expression”, but also to further the author’s rehabilitation of “expressive intelligibility” as the thought of the continuum, where intelligibility, beauty and simplicity mutually imply each other.
