A Leibniz and Clarke: Study of Their Correspondence

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1997 - Biography & Autobiography - 250 pages
The correspondence between Leibniz and Samuel Clarke (1715-16) was perhaps the most famous and influential philosophical exchange of the 18th century. It focused on the clash between the Newtonian and Leibnizian world systems, involving disputes in physics, theology, and metaphysics. Vailati's text provides an overview and commentary on this important body of letters. He identifies and evaluates the various arguments, and situates the views advanced by the correspondence in the context of their authors' principal writings.
