79 Leibniz actually calculates the sum total of all possible combinations that could be formed “from the mere definition of a good man”: it all computes to 1,485,600 combinations! And that clipping the “everyone” from the predicate “who loves”, for otherwise it would have been necessary to enumerate every single individual on the planet (A VI/1 478). Introduction xxxiii (Nullum justum est injustum) and “Everything obligatory is possible” (Omne debitum possibile est). The third line of inquiry consists in the attempt to combine the legal modalities with judgments of probability.
The water therefore sinks down as much as it can, but then, when the speed of the decrease will no longer equal the speed of the increases, it will penetrate obliquely into the side. 5. However, under the stated axiom [the water] will not descend at an angle more oblique than 45 (rather, when [the water] is spread a little toward the side, it will penetrate into the earth in a straight line, as far as it is distant from the side) and thus the water at G will at most run to H; [the water] at I, to K; [the water] at L, to M; and, finally, the topmost water at A will not run any further than D, where the estate of the neighbour begins.
A demonstration which at the same time “elucidates” and “proves” in a weak sense. 72 Despite these shortcomings, Leibniz is quick to generalize his approach to the entire science of law: The doctrine of Right belongs to those sciences which depend on definitions and not on experience and on demonstrations of reason and not of sense; they are problems of law, so to speak, and not of fact. For since justice consists in a kind of congruity and proportionality, we can understand that something is just even if there is no one who practices it or upon whom it is practiced.
