[Comments welcome]  

Topic                      Leibniz                                         
Materialism

Existence                Mental + Physical                            Physical 
only    
  
Nominalism            Nonphysical or Mental + Physical      Physical Only

Reality                   Only mental is real                          Only 
physical  is real 

Mathematics             Mental is real but only as description   Only physical 
is real, math is not real but apparently embedded (?)

Mind                      Mental                                            
Physical

In spacetime  ?      No                                                  Yes
