The Labyrinth of the Continuum: Writings on the Continuum Problem, 1672-1686 [Book Review]

The Leibniz Review 13:155-165 (2003)


This book consists of four parts: 1) an introduction of about 60 pages, mainly focused on the problem of the continuum in Leibniz; 2) a selection of Leibniz’s papers according to the critical edition prepared in Berlin, with English translation; 3) two appendices with excerpts in English from Leibniz’s papers and from texts of other authors on the continuum; 4) a rich collection of notes and a Latin-English glossary. In what follows I will make some short remarks about each of these parts.
