Cambridge Companion to Leibniz by Nicholas Jolley

Book Description

Gottfried Leibniz was a remarkable thinker who made fundamental contributions not only to philosophy, but also to the development of modern mathematics and science. At the centre of Leibniz's philosophy stands his metaphysics, an ambitious attempt to discover the nature of reality through the use of unaided reason. This volume provides a systematic and comprehensive account of the full range of Leibniz's thought, exploring the metaphysics in detail and showing its subtle and complex relationship to his views on logic, language, physics, and theology. Other chapters examine the intellectual context of his thought and its reception in the eighteenth century. New readers and nonspecialists will find this the most accessible and comprehensive guide to Leibniz currently available. Advanced students and specialists will find a conspectus of recent developments in the interpretation of Leibniz.

Books By Author Nicholas Jolley

Locke's Touchy Subjects by Nicholas Jolley Locke's Touchy Subjects, Hardback (May 2015)

Nicholas Jolley shows that the mind-body problem and the nature of personal immortality are more central to Locke's philosophy than has been realized. He argues that Locke takes up unorthodox positions in both cases, and holds that Locke's criticisms of Descartes were controversial responses to challenging metaphysical and theological issues.

Causality and Mind by Nicholas Jolley Causality and Mind, Hardback (November 2013)

This book presents seventeen of Nicholas Jolley's essays on early modern philosophy. They focus on two main themes: the debate over the nature of causality; and the issues posed by Descartes' innovations in the philosophy of mind. Together, they show that philosophers in the period are systematic critics of their contemporaries and predecessors.

Leibniz by Nicholas Jolley Leibniz, Hardback (May 2005)

In this introduction to his philosophy, Jolley introduces and assesses the whole of Leibniz's philosophy. An important feature of the book is its introduction to Leibniz's moral and political philosophy, an overlooked aspect of his work.

Locke by Nicholas Jolley Locke, Paperback (January 1999)

Provides an introduction to the philosophy of John Locke, one of the most influential thinkers in modern times. This book aims to show the fundamental unity of Locke's thought in his masterpiece, the "Essay Concerning Human Understanding", in which Locke advances a coherent theory of knowledge as a largely human construction.
