Editorial Reviews

Review

'Strickland's excellent collection not only provides a highly accessible entry point to students approaching Leibniz for the first time, but also constitutes a significant contribution to Leibniz scholarship; the selections are fresh and interesting, and succeed in revealing the breadth and depth of Leibniz's philosophy.'Vernon Pratt, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, Lancaster University

'Since no one or two of Leibniz's works capture the breadth of his thought, Strickland's anthology is a happy solution and fills a neglected niche in hitherto published anthologies.'Daniel J. Cook, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Brooklyn College, CUNY

"Strickland (Lancaster Univ., UK) has a long working relationship with his subject matter, and indeed the citing of Leibniz's letters and usually obscure archive materials is good evidence for this. The author also posts previously untranslated works on his Web site www.Leibniztranslations.com. This book pursues the complex matter of theodicy in a focused manner... the book contains much useful information... and is worth reading by a sophisticated audience. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and researchers/faculty."

"A volume of Leibniz translations by Lloyd Strickland, The Shorter Leibniz Texts was very welcome. Strickland can render Leibniz clearly in a prose which enables, rather than steadies, the dizzying effects of Leibniz's different concepts as they encompass infinity. Many of the pieces - On The Death Penalty, On The Happy Life, to choose two - have not appeared in English before. Check out Strickland's peerless website for many other short translations published online."

"The introduction is a clear, informative guide to the organization of the Leibniz short texts that follow. The rest of the book consists of those texts, a translated collection of letters, and notes spanning Leibniz's life. They are particularly useful because this important thinker did not provide a book that covers his vast interests or a systematic philosophical position. The Shorter Leibniz Texts provides a most valuable contribution for Leibniz scholars." Summing Up: Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare works October 10, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great contribution to the scholarship of the greatest of all forgotten universal geniuses: Leibniz. The fact that most of what Leibniz wrote in his life has yet to be translated to English is a mortal sin. This work is a leap in the right direction.
