MORAL HARMONY AND MORAL LOVE IN THE METAPHYSICS OF G.V. LEIBNIZ

Abstract

The article deals with the analysis of moral love as sense–making component of person’s life, the role of predetermined harmony in his spiritual activity in the metaphysics of G.V. Leibnitz is defined. It is shown that moral principles laid down in the soul of each individual, make all people kin, are reflected in moral love: everyone sees in the happiness of another their own happiness. Thus, humanity acquires the status of social instinct; the need for the joy of his fellow is caused by the pre-established harmony, which requires the preservation of moral harmony; personality becomes moral in that case, if he lives in harmony with the world order, which means nothing but acceptance of the self and the love of humanity as a whole and each of its representatives.
