Abstract:

"Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) was one of the first modern philosophers and one of the most significant. His contributions were often groundbreaking, and his imprint still remains on such fields as logic, mathematics, science, international law, and ethics. Although he published relatively little during his lifetime, he was in regular correspondence with important philosophers and even political leaders. Historical Dictionary of Leibniz's Philosophy sheds light not only on his philosophical thought but also the impact it had on the thinking of his contemporaries. They, and he, are described in numerous cross-referenced dictionary entries. Also explored are his writings, concepts, and action in specific fields. A bibliography provides a strong foundation for further study."--Jacket.
