This is an abridgement of the complete translation of the New Essays, first published in 1981, designed for use as a study text.

The material extraneous to philosophy - more than a third of the original - and the glossary of notes have been cut and a philosophical introduction and bibliography of work on Leibniz have been provided by the translators.

The marginal pagination has been retained for ease of cross-reference to the full edition.

The work itself is an acknowledged philosophical classic, in which Leibniz argues point by point with Locke's Essay Concerning Human Understanding.

The result is the single most important confrontation between the philosophical traditions of rationalism and empiricism.

It makes an extremely suitable focus for the study of Leibniz's thought and of those two traditions in relation to one another.
