Full Idea

Leibnizian monads clearly satisfy Kant's definition of noumena.

Gist of Idea

Leibnizian monads qualify as Kantian noumena


Sebastian Gardner (Kant and the Critique of Pure Reason [1999], 06 'Noumena')

Book Reference

Gardner,Sebastian: 'Kant and the Critique of Pure Reason' [Routledge 1999], p.201

A Reaction

This needs qualifying, because Leibniz clearly specifies the main attributes of monads, where Kant is adamant that we can saying virtually nothing about noumena.
