Leibniz, Gottfried (1646-1716)

German philosopher, physicist, and mathematician whose mechanical studies included forces and weights. He believed in a deterministic universe which followed a "pre-established harmony." He extended the work of his mentor Huygens from kinematics to include dynamics He was self-taught in mathematics, but nonetheless developed calculus independently of Newton . Although he published his results slightly after Newton , his notation was by far superior (including the integral sign and derivative notation), and is still in use today. It is unfortunate that continental and English mathematicians remained embroiled for decades in a heated and pointless priority dispute over the discovery of calculus Leibniz made many contributions to the study of differential equations discovering the method of separation of variables reduction of homogeneous equations to separable ones, and the procedure for solving first order linear equations. He used the idea of the determinant 50 years before Cramer , and did work on the multinomial theorem Leibniz combined the Scala Naturae with his plenum (continuous) view of nature, and called the result the Law of Continuity. He believed that it was not possible to put organisms into discrete categories, stating "Natura non facit saltus" (Nature does nothing in leaps).

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (b. 1646, d. 1716) was a German philosopher, mathematician, and logician who is probably most well known for having invented the differential and integral calculus (independently of Sir Isaac Newton). In his correspondence with the leading intellectual and political figures of his era, he discussed mathematics, logic, science, history, law, and theology. Principal Works:
  • De Arte Combinatoria
  • Hypothesis Physica Nova
  • unpublished manuscripts on the calculus of concepts, c. 1690
  • Nouveaux Essais sur L'entendement humaine
  • Monadologia
Leibniz's Life:
  • Born July 1, 1646, in Leipzig
  • 1661, entered University of Leipzig (as a law student)
  • 1663, baccalaureate thesis, De Principio Individui
  • 1667, entered the service of the Baron of Boineburg
  • 1672 - 1676, lived in Paris (met Malebranche, Arnauld, Huygens)
  • 1675, laid the foundation of the differential/integral calculus
  • 1676, entered the service of the Duke of Hannover; worked on hydraulic presses, windmills, lamps, submarines, clocks, carriages, water pumps, the binary number system
  • published Nova Methodus Pro Maximus et Minimus
  • 1685, took on the duties of historian for the House of Brunswick

5. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
Biography, introduction of main ideas and a chart with the order of angels.
Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716)
the Leibniz Series for Leibniz was one of the great philosophers of the age of Rationalism and the last major philosopher who was also a first rate, indeed a great, mathematician. His system, especially as developed by Christian Wolff (1679-1754), established the basic form of metaphysics in German universities, providing the philosophical starting point for Immanuel Kant (1724-1804). Leibniz's metaphysics is most profitably contrasted with that of his near contemporary Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677), since the two of them come down on exactly opposite sides of many important issues (giving us something like a step in Hegelian dialectic). Leibniz's system is also to be compared with the natural science of Isaac Newton (1642-1727), who became Leibniz's bitter enemy, not just in metaphysics, but in the argument over who had priority for the development of calculus. Leibniz, indeed, may have been the better mathematician, but he did not have Newton's success in applying mathematics to physical problems. Leibniz made his living mostly in the employ of German Princes, as a diplomat and even as a librarian, ending his days at the court of

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz was born at 6:45 PM on Sunday, July 1, 1646, in Leipzig, Germany. His father, Friedrich, was a professor of moral philosophy and vice chairman of the faculty or philosophy in the University of Leipzig (A Short…). His mother, Friedrich’s third wife, was Catharina Schmuck, the daughter of a lawyer. Friedrich died when Leibniz was only six years old ( Gottfried Wilhelm von…).
Leibniz taught himself Latin and some Greek by age twelve, so that he could read the books in his father’s library (Leibniz, Gottfried…). The books he most often read were those dealing with metaphysics and theology by Catholic and Protestant writers. Later in school he was taught Aristotle’s logic and theory of categorizing knowledge. He wasn’t satisfied with Aristotle’s system and began to think of ways of how he could improve upon it ( Gottfried Wilhelm von). In 1661 Leibniz began studying philosophy, mathematics and law at the University of Leipzig (A Short…). Other topics included in his two-year general degree were rhetoric, Latin, Greek and Hebrew. He received his bachelor’s degree in 1663 with a thesis On the Principle of the Individual. Leibniz went to school at Jena for the summer of 1663. The mathema
The ideas of the infinitesimal calculus can be expressed either in the notation of fluxions or in that of differentials. The former was used by Newton in 1666, but no distinct account of it was printed till 1693. The earliest use of the latter in the notebooks of Leibniz may probably be referred to 1675, it was employed in the letter sent to Newton in 1677, and an account of it was printed in the memoir of 1684 described below. There is no question that the differential notation is due to Leibniz, and the sole question is as to whether the general idea of the calculus was taken from Newton or discovered independently. [

13. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
Eine Kurzbiographie des deutschen Mathematikers.
Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
(Kurzbiographie) Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz wurde am 1. Juli (bzw. am 21. Juni alter Zeitrechnung) 1646 in Leipzig als Sohn eines Juraprofessors und einer Professorentochter geboren. Seine Eltern starben sehr früh, 1652 der Vater, 1664 die Mutter. In der Bibliothek seiner Eltern fand Leibniz genügend Stoff für seinen Wissenshunger, und schon als Achtjähriger brachte er sich ohne fremde Anleitung, nur mit Hilfe von illustrierten Büchern, die lateinische Sprache bei, die er wenige Jahre später, ebenso wie die griechische, hervorragend beherrschte. Mit 15 Jahren besuchte Leibniz die Universität seiner Heimatstadt, veröffentlichte mit 16 seine erste philosophische Schrift, legte mit 17 die erste philosophische Prüfung ab und wurde mit 18 Magister. Neben seinem Studium der Philosophie und Rechtswissenschaft in Leipzig (zwischendurch auch in Jena und in Altdorf bei Nürnberg) beschäftigte sich Leibniz intensiv mit Mathematik, Logik und Physik (z.B. Diskussion mit Otto v. Guericke), aber auch zeitlebens mit der Alchemie. In Leipzig wegen seines geringen Alters (er war kaum 20 Jahre alt) nicht zum Doktorat zugelassen, promovierte Leibniz 1666 in Altdorf zum Doktor beider Rechte, verzichtete aber danach auf eine akademische Karriere, da ihm die Entfaltung und praktische Anwendung seiner Fähigkeiten in den verkrusteten Strukturen einer Universität kaum möglich schienen. In Nürnberg machte Leibniz 1667 die Bekanntschaft mit dem ehemals kurmainzischen Minister Johann Christian Freiherr v. Boineburg, der ihm eine Anstellung als Hofrat, d.h. als diplomatischer Berater bei dem Mainzer Kurfürsten Johann Philipp von Schönborn vermittelte. In ursprünglich politischer Mission 1672 nach Paris gesandt (er sollte versuchen, Ludwig XIV. zum Angriff auf Ägypten zu bewegen, um Frankreichs Machtinteressen von Deutschland abzulenken), nutzte Leibniz seinen vierjährigen Aufenthalt in der europäischen Metropole, in der er mit führenden Gelehrten seiner Zeit zusammentraf, um sich vor allem auf mathematischem Gebiet weiterzubilden. Sein Lehrer und besonderer Förderer war der in Paris lebende holländische Physiker, Astronom und Mathematiker Christiaan Huygens.
