This edition includes an introductory essay and a set of appendices of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century texts, which help illuminate and contextualize Leibniz's ideas. Among these are extensive passages from Leibniz's Theodicy, many of which are cited in The Monadology.
"This is an excellent edition for students first encountering Leibniz's difficult philosophical system. In addition to the three classic expressions of Leibniz's metaphysics and epistemology, the editor provides a fascinating selection of texts that situate these works in their historical context. And of especially great value is Loptson's excellent introduction—which can be read with profit by beginning students and Leibniz scholars alike." - Brandon C. Look, University of Kentucky
