Science and the Principle of Sufficient Reason: Du Châtelet contra Wolff

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
I argue that Émilie Du Châtelet breaks with Christian Wolff regarding the scope and epistemological content of the principle of sufficient reason, despite his influence on her basic ontology and their agreement that the principle of sufficient reason has foundational importance. These differences have decisive consequences for the ways in which Du Châtelet and Wolff conceive of science.
