Keywords: Leibniz Gottfried Wilhelm; conditionals; supposition

Summary/Abstract: Philosophical statements are often suppositions. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz proposes in "Nouveaux Essais sur l?entendement humain", 1704, a method of the construction of assertive conditionals occurring between any philosophical suppositions. If we are able to infer a philosophical statement from any suppositions then the implication between these suppositions and the obtained statement is assertive. In the article some examples of the application of the Leibniz?s method are considered.
