Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz was a prominent German polymath and one of the most important logicians, mathematics and natural philosophers of the Enlightenment.

His Life:

Gottfried Leibniz was born June 21, 1649 and died November 14,1716. He was a German philosopher, mathematician, and political adviser, important both as a metaphysician and as a logician and distinguished for his independent invention of the differential and integral calculus. ​

The Integration Theory of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz has had its development of mathematics over the course of the last four millennia shows a steady though sometimes slow advance, with one mathematician’s ideas greatly stimulating those of his successors.

Gottfried Liebniz remains one of the greatest and most influential metaphysicians, thinkers and logicians in history. ​

Because of his high praise and position, Leibniz’s signature came of great honor and had its worth. ​


He is arguably the last polymath in history.​



Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646–1716) was one of the great thinkers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and is known as the last “universal genius.” He made deep and important contributions to the fields of metaphysics, epistemology, logic, philosophy of religion, as well as mathematics, physics, geology, jurisprudence, and history. Even the eighteenth-century French atheist and materialist Denis Diderot, whose views were very often at odds with those of Leibniz, could not help being awed by his achievement, writing in his entry on Leibniz in the Encyclopedia, “Perhaps never has a man read as much, studied as much, meditated more, and written more than Leibniz… What he has composed on the world, God, nature, and the soul is of the most sublime eloquence.” Overall, I saw this project as a great new experience, getting out of my comfort zone or into a topic in which I thought would never catch my eye. I really enjoyed learning about Gottfried and what he has done to change how we study math now. ​
