Leibniz: Determinist, Theist, Idealist

By Robert Merrihew Adams | Go to book overview

Bibliography

Citations in the text and notes of this book are by abbreviation or short name and title, keyed to this bibliography. Works cited by abbreviation are cited by page number unless otherwise noted below. Entries separated by a slash refer to the original and an English translation of the same passage; but I give my own translations from Latin, French, and German (with a few exceptions, where only a translation is cited). Because VE is not fully published, is not available in bookstores and libraries, and will be superseded by A VI,iv, I have cited it only where necessary and have generally given another reference for identification, except when citing VE for the dating of a text. Because A is the most authoritative (though not the most accessible) edition, it is cited, where available, in preference to others. Because L is the most compendious English translation of Leibniz's philosophical writings, it is generally cited in preference to others, where it has the text, though I have occasionally given precedence to another translation that seemed to me importantly superior in the passage in question.
