Contingency, reason and necessary goodness in Leibniz

Studia Leibnitiana 30 (2):194-203 (1998)

Abstract
J'essaie de montrer que chez Leibniz l'existence d'un monde qui ne soit pas le meilleur des mondes possibles est elle-même possible. Une telle possibilité au demeurant s'avère compatible avec l'affirmation de ce même Leibniz selon laquelle Dieu ne créerait aucun monde, a moins qu'il n'y eût le meilleur des mondes possibles. Car, il est logiquement possible, pas plus, que, vu la nature du pouvoir, tout choix de Dieu en ce sens diffère de ce qui se réalise
