Title
The
tangled
origins
of the
Leibnizian
calculus
: a
case
study
of a
mathematical
revolution
Creator
Brown, Richard C.
Contributors
World Scientific (Firm)
DescriptionAbstract
This
book
is
a
detailed
study
of
Gottfried
Wilhelm
Leibniz's
creation
of
calculus
from
1673
to the
1680s
.
We
examine
and
analyze
the
mathematics
in
several
of his
early
manuscripts
as
well
as
various
articles
published
in the
Acta
Eruditorum
.
It
studies
some
of the
other
lesser
known
"
calculi
"
Leibniz
created
such
as the
Analysis
Situs
,
delves
into
aspects
of his
logic
, and
gives
an
overview
of his
efforts
to
construct
a
Universal
Characteristic
, a
goal
that has its
distant
origin
in the
Ars
Magna
of the
13th
century
Catalan
philosopher
Raymond
Llull
,
whose
work
enjoyed
a
renewed
popularity
in the
century
and a
half
prior
to
Leibniz
. This
book
also
touches
upon
a
new
look
at the
priority
controversy
with
Newton
and a
Kuhnian
interpretation
of the
nature
of
mathematical
change
. This
book
may
be the
only
integrated
treatment
based
on
recent
research
and should be a
thoughtprovoking
contribution
to the
history
of
mathematics
for
scholars
and
students
,
interested
in
either
Leibniz's
mathematical
achievement
or
general
issues
in the
field
.
