Note

Most of these papers were presented at a session on early modern philosophy and biology at the Fourth International Congress of HOPOS, the International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science (Montréal, June, 2002). (Another group of papers from the HOPOS 2002 Congress was presented in the Spring, 2003 issue of Perspectives on Science.) François Duchesneau, who kindly contributed the additional paper on Leibniz, chaired that HOPOS 2002 session. Thanks to Lisa Shapiro and Karen Detlefsen for their suggestions regarding this introductory essay.
