Leibniz: Philosophical Essays, Paperback Book
2 out of 5 (1 rating)


Although Leibniz's writing forms an enormous corpus, no single work stands as a canonical expression of his whole philosophy.

In addition, the wide range of Leibniz's work--letters, published papers, and fragments on a variety of philosophical, religious, mathematical, and scientific questions over a fifty-year period--heightens the challenge of preparing an edition of his writings in English translation from the French and Latin.

Review by

After reading this book, "Monadology" remains pretty much a "WTF" affair, as far as I'm concerned. I think I actually only really understood what Leibniz was getting at when I read Hegel's critique of him.
