Abstract

The theme of revenge and retribution excited the minds of philosophers at all times. Perhaps, there has been no other problem that provoked such an intensity of emotions and had such social «tuning fork sound». It truly penetrates all the deepest structures of our consciousness and touches practically all the «sore pints» of our existence either way. The author undertakes the task to analyze the theme of revenge and retribution in the works of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, where it fits logically into his theodicy. The line of the justification of revenge is also traced in the article on the principle of «pre-established harmony». 

Key words

God’s wrath, revenge, retribution, justice, theodicy, the principle of «pre-established harmony».
