"The authors are dealing with some of the most central and difficult concepts in his metaphysics, and they are dealing with them at a high and rigorous level. This results in one of the book's chief virtues: it significantly forwards the debate in current Leibniz scholarship on a number of interesting fronts.... It is a pleasure to see this sweeping metaphysical vision explicated and argued with..." Philosophy in Review
"This is an excellent book and an important contribution to the field." Review of Metaphysics
"Everyone interested in Leibniz ought to read this fine, stimulating book." The Philosophical Review, Alan Nelson, University of California, Irvine
"I enthusiastically recommend the book...to anyone with such a background and with an interest in the history of thought, the metaphysics of individuation and/or modality, or the particular metaphysical problems associated with theism." Philosophia Christi, Roy T. Cook, University of St. Andrews
This book offers a sustained re-evaluation of the most central and perplexing themes of Leibniz's metaphysics. Jan Cover and John O'Leary Hawthorne examine the question of how the scholastic themes which were Leibniz's inheritance figure - and are refigured--in his mature account of substance and individuation. As a rigorous philosophical treatment of a still-influential mediary between scholastic and modern metaphysics, their study will be of interest to historians of philosophy and modern metaphysicians alike.
