Item description for Geometry and Monadology (Leibniz's Analysis Situs and Philosophy of Space) (Science Networks. Historical Studies) by Vincenzo De Risi...

This book reconstructs, from both historical and theoretical points of view, Leibniz's geometrical studies, focusing in particular on the research Leibniz carried out in the last years of his life. It is indeed the first ever comprehensive historical reconstruction of Leibniz's geometry that meets the interests of both mathematicians and philosophers. The main purpose of the work is to offer a better understanding of the Leibnizean philosophy of space and mature metaphysics, through a pressing confrontation with the problems of geometric foundations.
Regarding the scope of these problems, the book also deals in depth with Leibniz's theory of sensibility, thus favouring the comparison and contrast between Leibniz's philosophy and Kant's transcendentalist solution. The Appendix references to a number of previously unpublished manuscripts on geometry from the Leibniz Archiv in Hannover, which disclose new theories, points of view and technicalities of Leibniz's thought.
