Christia Mercer has exposed for the first time the underlying doctrines of Leibniz's philosophy. By analyzing Leibniz's early works she demonstrates that the metaphysics of pre-established harmony developed many years earlier than previously believed and for reasons that have not been understood. A much deeper understanding of some of Leibniz's key doctrines emerges. Christia Mercer's study will force scholars to reconsider their basic assumptions about early modern philosophy and science. This is a very significant contribution to the history of early modern philosophy that will be of special importance to philosophers, historians of ideas, historians of science and those in religious studies.

Review:

"...a closely argued interpretation of the early Leibniz that draws on a wide range of materials in and beyond the Leibnizian corpus. ...this work will lead to a substantial reconfiguring of our understanding of the early Leibniz." The Philosophical Review

"...Mercer's book constitutes an impressive and outspoken piece of research which forcefully promotes and advances in the Anglo-American world a new way of approaching the history of philosophy." Journal of the History of Philosophy

"This is a bold book, one that radically challenges the accepted views of Leibniz and his development: it will change how we understand his mature philosophy. Though it will be controversial, her position is one that must be reckoned with. Leibniz's Metaphysics: Its Origins and Development will not be ignored; it will be read and passionately debated for years to come." Daniel Garber, University of Chicago

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book offers a major reassessment of Leibniz's metaphysics. Christia Mercer has exposed the underlying doctrines of Leibniz's philosophy. By analysing Leibniz's early works she demonstrates that the metaphysics of pre-established harmony developed many years earlier than previously believed and for reasons which have not been understood. As a result of this analysis she has unearthed a philosophical school that Leibniz scholars have not recognized. A much deeper understanding of some of Leibniz's key doctrines emerges. Moreover, since the Leibniz that is revealed here does not fit neatly into the standard accounts of the history of philosophy and science, Christia Mercer's study will prompt scholars to reconsider their basic assumptions about early modern philosophy and science.
