    The story of the legacy and impact of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) has as many twists and turns as there are people who have been touched by his ideas, each twist and turn forming a new story about the adoption, amplification, development, rejection, or distortion of Leibniz’s thought from his own time to ours. This volume contains eleven such stories, focusing on various elements of his thought such as optimism, probability theory, dynamics, monadology, and his efforts to systematize and codify the law. The aim of this chapter is to introduce each of these stories and put them in a broader context by outlining the findings of previous research into the legacy and impact of Leibniz's work.
