Abstract

This book is devoted to one of the most prolific problems in the history of philosophy: the way in which Spinoza's thought refracts into Leibniz's. The question, which has been the subject of discussion for three hundred years, continues to feed lively debate and to stimulate the imagination of novelists. The Leibnizian encounter with Spinoza is both characteristic and original in the archives of intellectual history. Characteristic, because it is emblematic of the way in which one system of thought can refuse another one while devoting a lot of care to study it, to the point that the readers will sometimes wonder if it does not have in spite of him borrowed from this doctrine which he has so often frequented to refute it. Original, because in the case of Leibniz and Spinoza, the opposition as the approximation suppose a third term, Cartesianism, of which each can claim in part but in part only - the confrontation then taking place in a triangular game which is will further complicate cross-referencing of followers and opponents. To this is added a long history of the reception where the study of Leibniz and Spinoza has often served as a battlefield for contemporary debates. The fifteen new contributions gathered here enrich this long debate by taking into account the most recent advances in publishing and commentary.
