This e-book reconstructs, from either ancient and theoretical issues of view, Leibniz's geometrical experiences, focusing particularly at the examine Leibniz performed within the final years of his existence. it really is certainly the 1st ever complete ancient reconstruction of Leibniz's geometry that meets the pursuits of either mathematicians and philosophers. the most objective of the paintings is to supply a greater knowing of the Leibnizean philosophy of house and mature metaphysics, via a urgent disagreement with the issues of geometric foundations.
Regarding the scope of those difficulties, the e-book additionally bargains extensive with Leibniz's conception of sensibility, therefore favouring the comparability and distinction among Leibniz's philosophy and Kant's transcendentalist resolution. The Appendix references to a couple of formerly unpublished manuscripts on geometry from the Leibniz Archiv in Hannover, which reveal new theories, issues of view and technicalities of Leibniz's thought.
