Perhaps someone reading can help. Which Geographers directly discuss Leibniz? I know there is a discussion in David Harvey’s Justice, Nature and the Geography of Difference, and in Clarence Glacken’s Traces on the Rhodian Shore. Doreen Massey makes use of purportedly Leibnizian ideas, but does she ever really discuss him? John Wylie talks about Deleuze’s Leibniz in his ‘Depths and Folds’ article in Society and Space, but not Leibniz himself. Leibniz figures in some of Martin Rudwick’s histories of physical geography and earth science. There are brief mentions in Livingstone’s The Geographical Tradition, and Charles Withers’s Placing the Enlightenment, and in these two authors’ edited collection Geography and Enlightenment, but nothing very detailed or specific.
I’m not looking for discussions in Leibniz’s own texts of geographical or spatial issues, or ones by non-Geographers on aspects of his thought that might be deemed geographical. While references to those are welcome, I think I know the key texts. I’m looking for discussions by Geographers of Leibniz. I’m trying to revise my ‘Another Leibniz’ paper, and one of the referee criticisms was that I didn’t discuss the literature in Geography. This is frustrating, because one of my key points was that he is barely discussed in Geography, so while I could add a long list of ‘not discussed here either’ type references, that seems pointless. The pieces cited above have mentions in passing, have a very specific focus (i.e. Glacken, Rudwick, or the discussion in Edward Casey’s The Fate of Place, though of course he isn’t a Geographer), or are based on a reading of limited texts.
So, specific references for Massey would be useful; or other discussions by people in the discipline.
