"Teachers who are looking for a brief reliable account of what Leibniz is all about...could hardly do better....Mates writes with clarity and precision....[and] has written what is now probably the best general account of Leibniz's philosophy from the perspective of the logician and general metaphysician."--International Philosophical Quarterly"An absorbing and instructive book."--Times Higher Education Supplement"Lucid and readable....A first-rate book on Leibniz."--Critical Reviews"This is an excellent book: quite possibly the best written on Leibniz since the publication of Russell's A Critical Exposition of the Philosophy of Leibniz....A challenging, lucid, tightly connected and virtually complete account of Leibniz's metaphysical system and philosophy of language. It is written in a clear and concise style. It displays a full mastery and (first-hand) knowledge, on the author's part, of its (somewhat forbidding) subject matter. It is unquestionably a commanding accomplishment."--The Philosophical Review"We should be grateful for the excellent work that Professor Mates has done."--Studia LeibnitianaRezension:
