Contains more than 60 original translations of papers written by the German philosopher Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716). By focusing on Leibniz's shorter philosophical writings rather than his lengthy and/or impenetrable pieces, this volume aims to be more 'student friendly' than rival anthologies of Leibniz's work.
