The first edition of Russell's first strictly philosophical work, one of the most important studies of Leibniz ever published. It established an approach to studying philosophers of the past that emphasises the philosophical rather than the historical. In Russell's own words, `Philosophic truth and falsehood, in short rather than historical fact, are what primarily demand our attention in this inquiry.' His interpretation emphasised the logical and deductive power of Leibniz's system in opposition to the standard interpretations that had previously led Russell to believe that the Monadology (one of Gottfried Leibniz's best known works representing his later philosophy) was a kind of fantastic fairy tale.
