As with the previous volumes in the Cambridge "Companion" series, this one conforms to the highest standards of research and scholarship. The list of contributors is impressive, as are the 13 essays written specifically for this volume, which cover all aspects of Leibniz's life, writings, and the intellectual milieu. Chapters deal with Leibniz's life and surroundings, early and late metaphysics, theory of knowledge, logic, language, physics, philosophy of religion, moral philosophy and the subsequent reception of his writings. Although sometimes highly technical, the essays are accessible to anyone with an interest in discovering the richness of Leibniz's philosophy. This collection provides valuable insights for the person newly acquainted with Leibniz, and controversial new interpretations for those who are already familiar with the canon. Highly recommended for all libraries. Upper-division undergraduate; graduate; faculty. W. F. Desmond; Black Hawk College
