Abstract

This article considers the application of the logical and mathematical methods to the problem of freedom by Leibniz. Leibniz himself believes specifically this methodological approach to allow him to solve the problem properly and to avoid the abyss of fatalism. Leibniz' approach to the problem is especially interesting in its correlation with the attempts of modern analytical philosophy to find a solution to the traditional social problems.
