(p.1) 1 Introduction
Leibniz’s Principle of Identity of Indiscernibles

Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra

Oxford University Press

This chapter contains a synopsis of Leibniz’s philosophy that highlights the centrality of the Identity of Indiscernibles, a plan of the book, and a discussion of the methodological assumptions of the book. The goal of the book is to achieve a philosophical interpretation and evaluation of Leibniz’s claims and arguments about the Identity of Indiscernibles. Thus both exegesis and philosophical analysis (understood in the broad sense of philosophical argumentation and reasoning) play major, and complementary, roles in the book. The book is an enterprise in what the author calls philosophical history of philosophy. But this is distinct both from Bennett’s collegial approach and what Sleigh has called, rather inappropriately, philosophical history of philosophy.

Keywords:   Exegesis, interpretation, history of philosophy, methodology
