The Leibniz–Clarke correspondence was a scientific, theological and philosophical debate conducted in an exchange of letters between the German thinker Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz and Samuel Clarke, an English supporter of Isaac Newton during the years 1715 and 1716. The exchange began because of a letter Leibniz wrote to Caroline of Ansbach, in which he remarked that Newtonian physics was detrimental to natural theology. Eager to defend the Newtonian view, Clarke responded, and the correspondence continued until the death of Leibniz in 1716.

  • Переписка Лейбница с Кларком — серия из 10 писем между немецким философом Готфридом Лейбницем (1646—1716) и английским богословом Сэмюелем Кларк (1675—1729), сторонником и пропагандистом идей Исаака Ньютона (1642—1727). Посвящённая богословским и философским дебатам, эта переписка в интеллектуальном отношении является одной из наиболее влиятельных в XVIII веке. Переписка велась с ноября 1715 года по август 1716 года и завершилась со смертью Лейбница, не успевшего ответить на пятое письмо Кларка. Обмен мнениями происходил через посредство принцессы Уэльской Каролины (1683—1737), и послания философов обычно являлись приложениями к письмам, адресованных авторами к принцессе. Письма Лейбница написаны на французском языке, а Кларка на английском. Оригинал пятого письма Кларка не сохранился.

  • The Leibniz–Clarke correspondence was a scientific, theological and philosophical debate conducted in an exchange of letters between the German thinker Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz and Samuel Clarke, an English supporter of Isaac Newton during the years 1715 and 1716. The exchange began because of a letter Leibniz wrote to Caroline of Ansbach, in which he remarked that Newtonian physics was detrimental to natural theology. Eager to defend the Newtonian view, Clarke responded, and the correspondence continued until the death of Leibniz in 1716. Although a variety of subjects is touched on in the letters, the main interest for modern readers is in the dispute between the absolute theory of space favoured by Newton and Clarke, and Leibniz's relational approach. Also important is the conflict between Clarke's and Leibniz's opinions on free will and whether God must create the best of all possible worlds. Leibniz had published only one book on moral matters, the Theodicée (1710), and his more metaphysical views had never been exposed to a sufficient extent, so the collected letters were met with interest by their contemporaries. The primary dispute between Leibniz and Newton about the calculus was still fresh in the public's mind and it was taken as a matter of course that it was Newton himself who stood behind Clarke's replies.
  • A correspondência Leibniz-Clarke foi um debate científico, teológico e filosófico realizado em uma troca de cartas entre o pensador alemão Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz e Samuel Clarke, um apoiador das teorias de Isaac Newton, nos anos entre 1715 e 1716. Embora uma variedade de assuntos seja abordada nas cartas, o principal interesse para os leitores modernos é a disputa entre a teoria absoluta do espaço favorecida por Newton e Clarke e a abordagem relacional de Leibniz. Também é importante o conflito entre as opiniões de Clarke e Leibniz sobre o livre arbítrio e se Deus deve criar o melhor de todos os mundos possíveis. Também é discutida qual é a natureza de milagres e da alma. O principal argumento utilizado por ambos os lados é o princípio da razão suficiente, com interpretações divergentes quanto ao seu significado. Através deste princípio da lógica, cuja formulação moderna é atribuída a Leibniz, os autores também discutem a existência ou não do vácuo e se os átomos são ou não indistinguíveis, o que violaria o princípio da razão suficiente de acordo com o filósofo alemão.
