Abstract

This article explores the main aspects of the Natural philosophy of the Jesuit Ruggero Giuseppe Boscovich and tries to stress the consistency between the reflections he fostered for the elaboration of his great work, Theoria Philosophiae Naturalis, and the eighteenth-century discussion on the opposition between the perspectives of Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz, an opposition which continued even after their deaths.
