    Abstract:
    The role of insensible appetitions (similar to insensible perceptions, or petites perceptions) in Leibniz's theory of appetite and will is sketched. Since such insensible appetitions are the medium of interaction, through the body, between the individual and the physical world, and the form in which, at a microscopic level, environmental sensations originate, it can be concluded that the internal sense, i.e. the imagination, plays to some extent the role of a channel through which such environmental perceptions are collected and organized; here the sentiment of phenomenal reality takes its form, that is then offered both to knowledge and to practice.
