As the teacher of Leibniz and Pufendorf, Erhard Weigel (1625–1699) had a strong influence on the development of philosophical thinking in the 17th and 18th centuries. Weigel is also considered to be an intellectual pioneer of »scientific thinking«. His work includes over one hundred writings in the areas of mathematics, philosophy, astronomy, physics, pedagogy, law, architecture, history, geography, ethics, mechanical science and technology. Although Weigel’s work has triggered considerable scholarly interest and is also highly significant for the history of ideas, this is the first time it has been made available in a modern edition.
