Abstract

Leibniz lecteur de Spinoza offers a new global interpretation of one of the richest encounters in the history of philosophy. In the first part, I reconstruct the confrontation of the two philosophers on issues concerning theology and politics. In the second and third parts I follow the evolution of Leibniz’s reception of Spinoza’s philosophy from the De summa rerum (1675-76) to the 1678 comments on Spinoza’s Ethics (1678). The final part explores a series of comparative interpretations of Spinoza that Leibniz developed from 1679 onwards, in particular in relation to Cartesianism, cabbalism, and Bayle’s skepticism.
