Synopsis

In this book, modern scientists and philosophers of science confront the prophetic legacy of the 17th century philosopher Leibniz-a metaphysical agenda full of ideas presaging today's state of the art research into relativity and quantum cosmology; the physics of force, mass, momentum, time and space; complexity and chaos theories; fundamental particles and multiple worlds; and of the electronic cosmos of our computer era. Their immense relevance to us is demonstrated by the engagement with them of over 200 present-day scientific minds. In essence this monograph comprises a survey and critical comparison of interlocking texts, and will serve philosophers as a gateway into fundamental science from the angle of metaphysics, as well as scientists as a documentation of Leibniz's profound philosophical impact on their own fields.

Jurgen Lawrenz was born and educated in Germany, but lives in Sydney, Australia. He gained his doctorate from the University of Sydney, where he also lectured on 17th century philosophy and aesthetics. His book, Leibniz: The Nature of Reality and the Reality of Nature, comprising a new interpretation of the whole Leibnizian system, was also published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing.
