Via careful reading of well-known, lesser known, and previously unedited texts, it gives a more accurate picture of his philosophical intentions, as well as the relevance of his project to contemporary debate. Two case studies are included, one concerning logic and the other arithmetic- they illustrate a theory of intelligibility that takes as its central notion possibility for thought, a notion which allows Leibniz to escape certain traps of psychologism, the pseudo-ontology of empiricism, and the empty forms of logicism, and suggests new approaches for contemporary philosophy.

In this remarkable study, Grosholz and Yakira offer a fresh interpretive and conceptual angle on Leibnizs metaphysics. a] this study deserves high marks for its subtlety, novelty, and creative insight into Leibnizs modes of inquiry as well as for its philosophical acumen.
