Another specific one is Leibniz's discourse on Metaphysics. Basically the level for any of these sort of philosophical&maths related Latin texts??
Say i finish a course (like this book series) and pars I+II of LL, how long would this level take and how would i reach it?

It probably wasn't there. This is one of the problems with the moderation queue for new users on this site: it is very easy to miss posts in this way when they are posted out of order.
