- About this book
Hermann’s contribution to the diffusion of the Leibnizian calculus in Italy emerges through an examination of numerous published and unpublished sources. His correspondence with Italian scientists is related, strategies to promote and affirm the Leibniz school are reconstructed and the effects these strategies had on the development of analysis during the first three decades of the eighteenth century are taken into consideration.
