About the talk:
De Risi will sketch some of the most important geometrical results that Leibniz developed in his works on analysis situs, and show how these reflections affected his metaphysics and epistemology. In particular, he will concentrate on Leibniz’ studies on the foundations of geometry and his epistemology of mathematics, as well as on the relation between monads and space.
