Inhaltsangabe: "Leibniz Re-interpreted" tackles head on the central idea in Leibniz's philosophy, namely that we live in the best of all possible worlds. Strickland argues that Leibniz's theory has been consistently misunderstood by previous commentators. In the process Strickland provides both an elucidation and reinterpretation of a number of concepts central to Leibniz's work, such as "richness", "simplicity", "harmony" and "incompossibility", and shows where previous attempts to explain these concepts have failed. Thus the book provides an unignorable reinterpretation of many of the core themes of Leibniz's philosophy. This clear and concise study is tightly focussed and assumes no prior acquaintance with Leibniz or optimism. It thus serves as an ideal entry point into Leibniz's philosophy.
Rezension: "'An outstanding success. The author shows a capacity for writing and arguing clearly and concisely, a skill and confidence in translation, a familiarity with both central and out of the way Leibniz texts and sophistication in interpretation and a good knowledge of other optimists The book is a pleasure to read: everything is perspicuous and the work is well-structured.' Professor Stuart Brown (Open University)"
