The Dialogue between Sciences, Philosophy and Engineering. New Historical and Epistemological Insights

Homage to Gottfried W. Leibniz 1646-1716

Raffaele Pisano, Michel Fichant, Paolo Bussotti and Agamenon R. E. Oliveira, eds. With a foreword by Eberhard Knobloch

Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz (1646-1716) has a prominent worldwide place in the history of scientific
thought, from mathematics, logic, physics to the astronomy and engineering. In 2016, both his birth
and death have been commemorated. Given both the influence by Leibniz on Western sciences &
philosophies and his polyhedricity scientific activities, this special book chosen to focus on Leibniz’s
scientific works. In particular, exploring Leibniz’s intellectual matrix and heritage within interdisciplinary
fields, it presents contributions from leading experts on the subject and offers much-needed insights into
the subject from scientific, historical, philosophical and nature of science perspectives. It also provides
authoritative introductions to scholarly contributions, which are often dispersed in journals and books not
easily accessible to every reader. Therefore, this volume also contains excellent chapters on topics
which, generally speaking, have their place in any rounded science, history and philosophy. It provides
an absorbing and signifi cant reading for historians, philosophers and scientists alike.
