Summary

Chapter 1 elaborates on the historical context within which Kant developed his critique of early post-Leibnizian philosophy. It presents the pertinent elements of Wolff’s highly influential metaphysics and theory of cognition as well as the main thrust of Crusius’s critique of Wolff. Since Kant targeted both Wolff, Crusius, and those who followed in their wake, the chapter also discusses the main tenets of Crusius’s own metaphysics and the controversies that resulted from efforts among early post-Wolffian philosophers to reconcile Leibnizian monadology and Newtonian physics.
