Vortragstitel
Intellectual Peace and Philosophical Truth in Renaissance and Early Modern Germany: Leibniz and Preestablished Harmony
Zum Thema
Students of Leibniz have long asked:
  1. how is the seeker of truth supposed to grasp preestablished harmony, and
  2. what is the result of that understanding supposed to be?
By placing Leibniz's comments about expression, unity, and knowledge in their proper Renaissance context and by looking at some unnoticed texts, Mercer offers answers to these questions. She also makes evident the close (though unnoticed) connection between the philosophical culture of seventeenth-century Leipzig and that of Renaissance Italy.
