Praise for the First Edition: '...an excellent volume in the new Routledge Philosophers series. High marks are in order for its clarity, accessibility and acumen, as well as for the pace and style of its prose.' - Samuel Levey, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews '...full, thoughtful, lucid and interesting, and it can be recommended without hesitation both to those who are new to Leibniz's philosophy and those who are well acquainted with it.' - G.H.R Parkinson, British Journal for the History of Philosophy 'Jolley has done a fabulous job, and the result is perfectly suited for its intended purpose and audience. The work is very clearly written; the organization is excellent; and the coverage comprehensive.' - Vere Chappell, University of Massachusetts, USA 'Reading this gave me great pleasure - it is interesting, illuminating, systematic, thorough and above all pleasantly, smoothly and accessibly written. A splendid book.' - Roger Woolhouse, University of York, UK 'An excellent work. It will clearly establish itself as the the best introduction to the thought of Leibniz and I would recommend it to all students wrestling with this difficult philosophy for the first time.' - Brandon C. Look, University of Kentucky, USA
