The “Nova Leibniz” collection is an
attempt to create a collection of texts, which present the latest
news in the research of Leibniz's thinking as well as other related
authors or topics either preceding or following Leibniz’s time.
The highest scientific level is required, both in the aspects of methodology
and theme, and above all, the presentation of new interpretations
or reconstructions of some aspects of Leibniz's work is called for.
Also, publications of Leibniz's (or related authors’) unpublished
texts, which represent relevant notions, could be included. The discussion
and direct criticism of some interpretations or notable work which
could have a special influence in the history of Leibnizianism could
also be a part of this collection.
The volumes of the collection are understood as monographic research
and have a length of about 100 pages. These researches are larger
than articles, but less lengthy than conventional books. Maximum documentation
and scientific proof is needed for the defence of a new and concrete
thesis regarding the state of the issue addressed. Although secondary
literature should be taken into account, the objective is not to present
the state of the issue in question, rather it is more to propose new
hypotheses or to tackle the new problematics from Leibniz's original
The entire international Leibniz community is invited as well as all
the researchers interested in Leibniz's work or in related authors
and philosophical problems. Unpublished original writings are accepted
in several different languages. All submitted volumes are to have
an abstract of 2.000 words in other language.
The volumes will be distributed worldwide by Editorial Comares (Granada,
Spain, www.comares.com) who is
already distributing the volumes from Leibniz's “Philosophical
and scientific writings” in Spanish (www.leibniz.es).
The subscribers of this edition will receive a free volume from the
“Nova Leibniz” collection with the next volume
of Leibniz's Works. All “Nova Leibniz” volumes
will be commercially distributed.
The “Nova Leibniz” collection retains an International
Advisor Council who will decide on the publication of the original
