Claudine Cohen and Andre Wakefield offer the first English translation of "Protogaea", a central text in natural philosophy and an ambitious account of terrestrial history. Written between 1691 and 1693, and first published long after Leibniz's death in 1749, "Protogaea" reemerges in this bilingual edition with an introduction that carefully situates the work within its historical context.
Claudine Cohen is professor of the history of science at the Ecole des hautes etudes en sciences sociales, Paris, and the author of The Fate of the Mammoth: Fossils, Myth, and History, also published by the University of Chicago Press. Andre Wakefield is associate professor of history at Pitzer College in Claremont, California, and the author of The Disordered Police State: German Cameralism as Science and Practice, also recently published by the University of Chicago Press.
