Les fenêtres de la monadeGottfried Wilhelm Leibniz – Art et théâtre de la nature

Horst Bredekamp - Les fenêtres de la monade
Art historian and philosopher Horst Bredekamp reveals the importance of visual analysis and the central role of images in the development of the philosophical thought of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716). Relying mainly on the Leibnizian concept of the monad and on the Theater of Nature and Art, elaborated by the German philosopher and scientist from 1671 until his death, Bredekamp places Leibniz as a precursor of the theory of the image.
Foreword by Louis Ucciani.
Translated from the German by Richard Parisot (original title: Die Fenster Der Monade: Gottfried Wilhem Leibniz' Theater Der Natur Und Kunst, Walter de Gruyter, 2008).
Revised by Emmanuel Faure.
