    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The volume contains 320 letters and enclosures from around 30 correspondences. Four major developments dominate his conversations during these three years and lead to new themes: the astronomical, political, and theological aspects of the 1700 Protestant calendar reform; the newly founded Sozietät der Wissenschaften in Berlin; the discussion on Leibniz’s differential calculus, and the controversy with Denis Papin concerning dynamics.
