Leibniz -A Very Short Introduction

Leibniz – A Very Short Introduction (2016) by Maria Rosa Antognazza looks at the life and thought of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz who was co-discoverer of calculus and an important philosopher. The book goes very quickly over Leibniz’s life and his mathematical achievements and concentrates on his philosophy and his attempt to systematically redo all the sciences and his theories of monads. It’s interesting how the book concentrates on his philosophy where as it is his math work that has probably had greater impact.
