In the New Essays on Human Understanding, Leibniz argues chapter by chapter with John Locke's Essay Concerning Human Understanding, challenging his views about knowledge, personal identity, God, morality, mind and matter, nature versus nurture, logic and language, and a host of other topics. The work is a series of sharp, deep discussions by one great philosopher of the work of another. Leibniz's references to his contemporaries and his discussions of the ideas and institutions of the age make this a fascinating and valuable document in the history of ideas. The work was originally written in French, and the version by Peter Remnant and Jonathan Bennett, based on the only reliable French edition (published in 1962), first appeared in 1981 and has become the standard English translation. It has been thoroughly revised for this series and provided with a new and longer introduction, a chronology on Leibniz's life and career and a guide to further reading.… (more)

NUEVOS ENSAYOS SOBRE EL ENTENDIMIENTO HUMANO

Los Nuevos Ensayos sobre el Entendimiento humano son una de
las pocas obras que G. W. Leibniz (1646-1716) escribió con intención
de que fuese publicada, para que sirviese como réplica al Ensayo
sobre el Entendimiento humano había dado a la imprenta en 1690.

Leibniz pretendió dar una exposición completa de su sistema de
la armonía preestablecida en el terreno de la teoría del conocimiento,
las ideas y el lenguaje. Obra de madurez, clave del pensamiento
leibniciano, permaneció sin embargo inédita, pues la muerte de
Locke (1704) desaconsejó la publicación de un libro que polemizaba contra él.

Tan sólo en 1765 Raspe la rescató del inmenso fondo
de manuscritos inéditos que dejó Leibniz. Desde
entonces ha sido reeditada varias veces en todos los idiomas.

Esta edición castellana tiene en cuenta, por primera vez, las correcciones
introducidas en la edición critica de la Academia de Berlin (1962).

Javier Echeverría, nacido en Pamplona en 1948,
es licenciado en Matemáticas (1970) y doctor.
en Filosofía por la Universidad Complutense de
Madrid (1975). Ha sido profesor en la Politécnica de Madrid.
Posteriormente, ha estudiado filosofía en París y topologia en París y Bruselas.
Prepara una tesis doctoral en la Sorbona sobre Leibniz y el Analysis situs.
