Abstract


One of the major innovations of Leibniz's thought, of enormous meaning for later philosophy is, without any doubt, bis conception of force, a concept proper to the nature of every being and not only to the objects of nature. The text aims at emphasizing the concept, understanding it as an active and originary force in opposition to the conceptions of Aristotle and Scholasticism, but also in opposition to the multiple meanings of force introduced by Leibniz. Furthermore, in order to give an account of their nature, the notions of tendency, impetus and impediment are studied.
