Leibniz's solution to the puzzle of Lex Falcidia

Abstract: In his early legal works, G.W Leibniz addressed a puzzle in Roman Law, the paradox, or “perplexing case” of Lex Falcidia, proposing a solution to it. Here, after introducing the Falcidian paradox and its Leibnitian solution, a logical analysis will be presented. Some consideration will finally be devel- oped concerning the legal and logical significance of Leibniz’s approach to the Falcidian case.
