Excerpt from The Early Mathematical Manuscripts of Leibniz In writing the following pages, I have been greatly influenced and helped by the emphasis laid by Mr. Philip E. B. Jourdain upon the importance which Leibniz himself attached to the no tion of a calculus in general, and his own operational calculus in particular; he it was who also suggested that I should undertake a critical translation of the early mathematical manuscripts of Leib niz; to him also I am greatly indebted for many points upon which I was unable to make up my mind on the evidence that I could get from the manuscripts alone. I have also to thank Mr. W. J. Green street for looking through my articles before they were assembled for the purpose of this volume, and for making some valuable sug gestions. My excuse for publishing these manuscripts, enlarged with so many and such long critical notes, must lie in the fact that I have made a careful study of the work of Barrow, and have recognized, perhaps at more than its true value, though I do not think so personally, its great genius and the influence it had on Leibniz. The opportunities it was capable of affording to Leibniz, the greater likeness that the work of Leibniz bears to that of Barrow than to that of Newton, have forced me to the conclusion that Leibniz was in no way indebted to Newton for anything, yet his statement in a letter to the Marquis d'hospital, that he was under no obligation to Barrow for his methods, is absolutely correct.

This book offers an accessible and in-depth look at some of the most important episodes of two thousand years of mathematical history. Beginning with trigonometry and moving on through logarithms, complex numbers, infinite series, and calculus, this book profiles some of the lesser known but crucial contributors to modern day mathematics. It is unique in its use of primary sources as well as its accessibility; a knowledge of first-year calculus is the only prerequisite. But undergraduate and graduate students alike will appreciate this glimpse into the fascinating process of mathematical creation. The history of math is an intercontinental journey, and this book showcases brilliant mathematicians from Greece, Egypt, and India, as well as Europe and the Islamic world. Several of the primary sources have never before been translated into English. Their interpretation is thorough and readable, and offers an excellent background for teachers of high school mathematics as well as anyone interested in the history of math.

Robert E. Butts (1928-1997) was a philosopher and historian of science whose central concerns were the distinction between the rational and the irrational. He viewed scientific rationality as our major defence against the various conditions that encourage witch hunts and similar outbursts of irrationality, with all their attendant pain and terror. Butts saw himself as a pragmatic realist, combining what he took to be the best aspects of logical empiricism with a historically informed pragmatism, deeply appreciative of the methods of science, trying to describe a kind of rationality essential in the struggle to preserve human values. This volume gathers previously unpublished essays and lectures with some previously published, thematically related essays. It includes essays and lectures on philosophical aspects of the European witch hunt, on scientific rationality and methodology, and on the relationships between science and philosophy exhibited in the writings of such historically significant figures as Leibniz, D'Alembert, Hume, Kant, Carnap and Kuhn.
