Leibniz: A Very Short Introduction
Saturday 1 April 2017
Oxford University Press is proud to return to the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival with another series of soap box talks from the very short introductions series. These free, 15-minute talks feature expert authors from the series and take place twice a day in the Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.
Professor of philosophy Maria Rosa Antognazza outlines the central features of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz’s philosophy in the context of his overarching intellectual vision and aspirations. Leibniz was a man who wanted to improve the life of his fellow human beings through the advancement of all the sciences and the establishment of a stable and just political order.
