Ontologies: Leibniz vs Materialism on various topics (a first attempt)
Existence Mental + Physical Physical
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 (?)
In spacetime ? No Yes
