This chapter examines Leibniz's treatment of body in the context of a world grounded in monads. It examines a variety of ways in which Leibniz tries to integrate bodies into the world of monads, and a variety of ways in which he treats the notion of corporeal substance in the context of the monadological metaphysics. These views range all the way from views that seem to eliminate bodies altogether to views in which monads seem to be eliminated in favour of bodies and corporeal substances. In the end, it is proposed that Leibniz left behind many loose ends in his thought, questions he considered but did not resolve. In his later years, he was struggling with the problems and struggling toward a considered view on these issues. But he died before he got there.

Keywords:   Leibniz, Remond, metaphysics, body, monads, corporeal substance
