Jeanne Roland. Leibniz et l’individualité organique

O. Nachtomy

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Arts/Article reviewpeer-review


the book discusses Leibniz's notion of living things through (the notion of organic individuality in) a metaphysical and historical context-this theme was pioneered by François Duchesneau but has been almost ignored in the Anglophone world until quite recently. For these reasons, Roland's conclusions might seem more local and particular to the texts and the period under consideration; she is more concerned with an adequate analysis of the texts than with a global thesis that risks simplifying them. [...]her book does not advance a grand thesis but offers a careful and instructive story of Leibniz's chronological and con- ceptual development through the complexity of his texts.
