About the Author

Lloyd Strickland is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy in the Department of History, Politics & Philosophy at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. He has published four books: Leibniz Reinterpreted (2006), Shorter Leibniz Texts (2006), Leibniz and the Two Sophies (2011), and Leibniz's Monadology (2014). He also runs a website which houses some of his Leibniz translations:


A wonderful volume which is just as necessary as it is important. Strickland has done a great service in meticulously and artfully combining Leibniz's complicated views about the major facets of his beliefs concerning God and religion into one text ... The book is recommended without the slightest bit of reservation. The text is an invaluable source for not only scholars working on Leibniz and early modern thought, but to philosophers of religion as well. * International Journal for Philosophy of Religion *
A thoroughly eclectic selection of texts ... [Strickland] considers the case of the resurrection of a man raised solely on human flesh from infancy. Amidst increasing schism, pessimism and uncertainty, the rediscovery of his [Leibniz's] thought could not be timelier. * LSE Review of Books *
Lloyd Strickland has done students and teachers of Leibniz an enormous service in producing this fine selection from Leibniz's writings on philosophical theology, many of which appear in English for the first time. It will surely become a standard reference volume for many years to come. Whilst offering only a fraction of Leibniz's output on these issues, Leibniz on God and Religion serves to counter a tendency among some prominent Anglophone scholars to represent Leibniz as a philosopher whose views emerged primarily from his logical and/or scientific interests. In contrast, Strickland's volume clearly demonstrates the ways in which Leibniz's understanding of God and religion were at the very heart of his philosophical project throughout his career. * Paul Lodge, Tutorial Fellow in Philosophy, Mansfield College, University of Oxford, UK *
