For over fifty years, the study of G. W. Leibniz has been a recurring leitmotif in the professional life of Nicholas Rescher. On Leibniz offers eleven essays that examine key aspects of the eminent German philosopher-scientist's philosophy and personality. Leibniz was a coinventor of calculus, and his philosophical system helped define European philosophy for over a century. This collection allows the student of Leibniz to find, in one place, some illuminating insights into the seventeenth-century scholar, written by one of today's most productive philosophers. The essays deal with fundamental aspects of Leibniz's ontology, epistemic and methodological issues, and the personal and scholarly developments of certain particular periods of Leibniz's life. In the final chapter, Rescher offers a case study of how current issues in the philosophy of science can be addressed on Leibnizian principles.
