Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) was one of the first Modern philosophers, and as such, one of the most significant. His contributions were often pathbreaking and his imprint still remains on fields such as logic, mathematics, science, international law, and ethics. While publishing relatively little during his life, he was in regular correspondence with important philosophers and even political leaders.

The 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 included are other entries that present his writings, explain his concepts, and trace his action in specific fields. The introduction sums much of this up and―along with the bibliography―provides a strong foundation for further study.

About the Author:

Stuart Brown began teaching philosophy in 1963, and taught at St. Andrews and other universities, most recently retiring from the Open University, where he is presently an emeritus professor. He has written extensively on Leibniz, including several books and translations.

N.J. Fox was his last post-graduate student and is presently a free-lance writer and researcher.

Review:

Brown and Fox's Historical Dictionary is an invaluable aid to all readers of Leibniz....A tremendous achievement. (Dr. Pauline Phemister, University of Edinburgh)

In the case of Leibniz a well-constructed dictionary can do nothing but good....There is real strength in entries....A well established series....Snap it up. ("American Reference Books Annual", Vol. 21, No. 5 (2007))

This volume fills a necessary void....This entire series is vital for all levels of philosophy and theology coursework. (American Reference Books Annual, vol. 38 (2007))

This book is an invaluable reference tool not just for those approaching Leibniz for the first time, but for anyone interested in understanding Leibniz's life and work. (Dr. Lloyd Strickland, Lancaster University)

The net of references ti Leibniz' writings appears to be carefully crafted....This is a very useful volume. (Philosophy in Review, October 2008)
