Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) was hailed by Bertrand Russell as one of the supreme intellects of all time. A towering figure in seventeenth-century philosophy, his complex thought has been championed and satirized in equal measure, most famously in Voltaires Candide. In this outstanding introduction to his philosophy, Nicholas Jolley introduces and assesses the whole of Leibnizs philosophy. Beginning with an introduction to Leibnizs life and work, he carefully introduces the core elements of Leibnizs metaphysics: his theories of substance, identity and individuation; monads and space and time; and his important debate over the nature of space and time with Newtons champion, Samuel Clarke. He then introduces Leibnizs theories of mind, knowledge, and innate ideas, showing how Leibniz anticipated the distinction between conscious and unconscious states, before examining his theory of free will and the problem of evil. An important feature of the book is its introduction to Leibnizs moral and political philosophy, an overlooked aspect of his work.
