Then Comenius proceeded to describe the basic elements before moving on to the heavens and much, much more. This book was written to challenge a bright child like Leibniz. Another book by Comenius—this time for younger children—was Orbis Pictus [Picture of the World], with text also in both German and Latin. It was more of a picture book, illustrated with line drawings that appeared throughout the text, presenting basic facts about people and animals. Although most of the boys in Leibniz’s class would probably have preferred the more elementary Orbis, the textbook Janua was just right for Leibniz.

My father taught me to use my head—to think before I acted so that my actions would be more effective.

One book in his father’s library was a work of Ramon Llull (1232–1315). Llull had studied Aristotle carefully and had concluded that Aristotle’s categories for organizing all of human knowledge, while interesting, were far from complete. Llull was a philosopher whose goal was to advance philosophy. Llull used Aristotle as a starting point for his own revolutionary thinking. In his book Ars Magnus [The Great Art], he listed nine attributes—goodness, greatness, eternity, power, wisdom, will, virtue, truth, and glory, and claimed that by using only those nine criteria he could construct all of Christian doctrine.
