Item description for Substance and Individuation in Leibniz by J. A. Cover, John O'Leary-Hawthorne & John Hawthorne...

This book offers a sustained reevaluation 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 that 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Substance and Individuation in Leibniz?

Hard Metaphysics, Helpful History: Leibniz on Individuation  Mar 16, 2000
Here is a very good hard-edged book on Leibniz's metaphysics. This volume would never serve as an introduction to Leibniz: it is much too difficult. But it is accessible to graduate students in history of philosophy, especially in the modern period. The authors try to situate Leibniz's philosophy of individuation into some medieval context, in the early chapters, and return to those refrains through the rest of the book. But the rest of the book is one of the most careful and rigorous attempts to get at the bottom of the metaphysical topics relevant to the old issue of individuation and substance. It isn't an easy read, but one sure can learn a lot about Leibniz, and perhaps even more about philosophy, from it. These two guys just get down to business, and it's a real ride if you hang on. I recommend it for people interested in straight metaphysics, who doubt that historical texts can teach them anything useful.
