A presença do trágico na Teodiceia de Leibniz: a predestinação da salvação eterna e a destinação da condenação eterna

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review



Leibniz strives to conciliate the liberty of divine law and the cosmic order with the freedom of human action, affirming all good and bad events compete to bring about the consummation of God’s plan for Creation. The tragic imperfection of its parts, which reflects in the misery of evil deeds, converts into the perfection of the whole through the action of divine providence. The evil and the suffering destined by the consequent will of God, which results from the competition of all the particular individual wills, represent the means to a greater good, predestined by the prior will of God. All are predestined to eternal salvation with many destined to eternal condemnation.
