This course will focus on Du Châtelet and the Eberhard-Kant Controversy, including the problems of space and time in Leibniz, Kant and Du Châtelet. In the famous Kant-Eberhard controversy, we learn that Eberhard traces Kant’s roots back to Leibnizian philosophy and its commentators, including Du Châtelet, who he identifies as a key interpreter of Leibniz. This judgement has many interesting implications.
