16th Century philosopher and mathemtician who was a contemporary of Sir Isaac Newton. Was fucked over with regard to credit given to the pioneer of calculus. Leibniz developed the integral sign as well as developed the theoretical concepts of the derivative and integral, whereas newton mostly applied those concepts to physics. Leibniz and newton both made significant contributions and should be viewed as co-discoverers of calculus.
Leibniz should get more credit for the discovery of calculus

Adjective used to show how the historic conditions affect the recognition that we have of the writers and thinkers If Leibniz had been English and Newton German, the credit by to have created the calculus would be of Lebniz.
Dante, Shakespeare and Cervantes are Leibniz.
