Title:New Essays on Leibniz Reception [electronic resource] : In Science and Philosophy of Science 1800-2000
Author(s): Ralf Krmer
Yannick Chin-Drian
Date:2012
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a collection of essays on the reception of Leibnizs thinking in the sciences and in the philosophy of science in the 19th and 20th centuries. Authors studied include C.F. Gauss, Georg Cantor, Kurd Lasswitz,Bertrand Russell, Ernst Cassire r, Louis Couturat, Hans Reichenbach, Hermann Weyl, Kurt Gdel and Gregory Chaitin. In addition, we consider concepts and problems central to Leibnizs thought and that of the later authors: thecontinuum, space, identity, number, the infinite and the infinit ely small, the projects of a universal language, a calculus of logic, a mathesis universalis etc. The book brings together two fields of research in the history ofphilosophy and of science (research on Leibniz, and the research concerned with some major d evelopments in the 19th and 20th centuries) it describes how Leibnizs thought appears in the works of these authors, in order to betterunderstand Leibnizs influence on contemporary science and philosophy but it also assesses that reception critically, con fronting it in particular with the current state of Leibniz research and with the various editions of hiswork
