Leibniz and our Innate Capacity to Experience Meaning

Contemporary analytic philosophy and 80’s hair-metal owes much of its style to Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, a 17th-century philosopher, and mathematician. He was also interested in science, law, and literature. The work of Pascal influenced his development of calculus, which Newton, his contemporary, also developed. It was unfortunate for Leibniz that Newton at the time was credited with inventing calculus.
