Donald Rutherford


Donald Rutherford is a member of the UCSD Philosophy Department whose main research interests are in the history of modern philosophy. Much of his work has dealt with the philosophy of Leibniz, leading to a book, Leibniz and the Rational Order of Nature, and to a critical edition and translation (with Brandon Look) of the Leibniz-Des Bosses correspondence. His current research focuses on the role of eudaimonistic ethical theory in the seventeenth century.
