Franklin Perkins is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University, Chicago. He has published in early modern European philosophy, early Chinese philosophy, and comparative philosophy, with articles appearing in the Journal of the History of Ideas, the Journal of Chinese Philosophy, and the Leibniz Review.


"This is a carefully researched, closely argued, and clearly written work which offers a number of insights into the metaphysics and theology of Leibniz, especially as they are evidenced in his critiques of Chinese thought. Perkins has made a major contribution both to Leibniz studies and to comparative philosophy." Henry Rosemont, Trinity University, San Antonio "Perkin's book is not just good and informative, but also pathbreaking" - Justin E. H. Smith, Concordia University "The book is an excellent and timely resource foe anyone involved in the pursuit of philosophical wisdom in the context of world community." Robin R. Wang, Philosophy East and West
