1. In essays 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Discourse, Leibniz argues for the folowing points:
i) The actual world exhibits, in comparison with other possible worlds, the greatest perfection
ii) The perfection in being and in goodness – both moral and non-moral goodness – of the world is grounded in its own nature and character, not merely in the fact that God chose it.
State, explain and critically evaluate Leibniz’s arguments for exactly one of these theses. (Only one of these theses will be given on the actual test.)
