Can Kant’s claim that his philosophy differs from Leibniz concerning his interpretation of phenomena, the knowledge of their origin and essence, be detected in Du Châtelet’s philosophy as well?
Eberhard tries to prove that Kant’s ideas were not as “original” as he had claimed. If Kant’s ideas can be tied back to Leibniz-Wolffian philosophy, is this also true for Du Châtelet? If this is an invalid claim for an adequate understanding of Kant, is it consequently also inadequate for Du Châtelet?
