is one entitled " New Essays on the Human Understand-
ing," ("Nouveaux Essais sur 1'Entendement humain,"
about 1765,) in which he controverts the opinions of Locke.
Another of his works is called " Pre-Established Har-
mony," (" Harmonic pre-e'tablie.") His"Monadologie,"
(1714,) in which his metaphysical system is developed,
is one of the most remarkable monuments of his intel-
lectual power. "There was only one man in the world,"
says Hallam, "who could have left so noble a science as
philosophical jurisprudence for pursuits of a still more
exalted nature and for which he was still more fitted ;
and that man was Leibnitz himself." ("Introduction to
the Literature of Europe.") He was never married. His
disposition was cheerful, his manners were affable, and
his habits temperate. A complete edition of his works
has recently been published by Foucher de Careil, Paris.
