It is often said that Leibniz had never written his Magnum Opus. Most of his writings were casual ones and remained unpublished. Thus the collected works of Leibniz has great importance, but the most complete one, the Akademie edition, is not yet completed. Qui me non nisi editis novit, non novit (Who knows me only by the published, not know me), says Leibniz (in a letter to Placcius, Feb 21, 1696, Dutens, 6, 1, p.65). For the time being, we do not know Leibniz in whole.
