However, his understanding of the discontinuity (aritmologichnosti) is not exhausted by 'pure' mathematical approach, and was of much more universal. Bugaev comes to certain metaphysical conclusions, arguing that the moral and aesthetic ideas of rights reflect the true ontological reality of the world and rooted 'in the very essence of things'. Ultimately 'aritmologii' becomes a kind of justification principle Bugaeva monadologicheskoy metaphysics leybnitsianskogo type.
