Abstract

Drawing on my previous paper “Monadology and Music”(Uchii 2015), I will further pursue the analogy between Monadology and music. I wish to emphasize that good examples of “pre-established harmony” can be extracted from this analogy. Also, a good illustration of “Leibniz’s Demon” can be obtained. This Demon is such that it can tell, given a piece of matter, the whole history of the world, past, present, and future. In terms of finite examples of musical pieces and their performances, Leibniz’s point of this Demon can be better understood.
