In many ways better than the book Leibniz is reviewing because Leibniz explains more clearly the implications of each point and helped me understand Locke.
But beyond that, Leibniz's own philosophy is revealed so well and after reading this book, I have a renewed appreciation for the great depth of his thinking. What an amazing work this is!!!! Written near the end of Leibniz's life , not too long before his "Essays on Theodicy" , the Essays are the work of the mature philosopher explaining his point of view in relation to Locke's thought.
Almost all of these views were already set before he wrote this work and are found in other works as Leibniz often notes , but on occasion we can see that Locke's ideas inspire Leibniz to consider his views from a different stance. In some ways, the What an amazing work this is!!!!
In some ways, the "New Essays" has an ease about it, compared to Leibniz's professional articles, that makes his philosophy a bit clearer at times. It also at points offers a good summary of his philosophy, though not as focused or detailed as his articles.
Some object to the artificial dialogue structure, but I did not find it that cumbersome. There are so many high points, including when Leibniz moves away from the philosophy and lashes out at his society.
Unlike many philosophers, Leibniz had a life in the world and saw first-hand the problems of governing, education, and commerce. I read the book beside the original French and found the translation at times free and even paraphrased, especially in Parts III and IV, as if one person then another was translating. As a translator myself, I know how easy it is to simply avoid the cumbersome way an author writes and make it more elegant in English. Nonetheless, they rarely missed Leibniz's intent I think , and I'm not an expert in 17th century French.
I did wonder why certain translation decisions were made. The "Notes" in this edition are quite exceptional and important as a work of their own. Some of them are little essays on important ideas or people connected to Leibniz or his contemporaries. Indeed one might purchase the book for the "Notes" and not be disappointed. This Cambridge edition is useful and worth buying especially for the great notes and the clarification of Locke's words.
As in all translations of important works, it would be helpful to know the original language for reference. View 1 comment. Sur quoi porte la controverse? Das Buch ist in Dialogform geschrieben.
