Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Malebranche and Leibniz Solution to Evil. It needs to be at least 1250 words. While in the physical evil, there is no participation of humans, the moral evil is contributed by the involvement of the personal will and intellect in doing what naturally should not be done, or what is simply considered morally wrong.
The two concepts of the problem of evil in the world have been a subject of much debate, with diverse views regarding the role of God in the occurrence of events and actions that causes human beings to suffer. Thus, while there is a total agreement between Malebranche and Leibniz regarding the role of God in creating the world, where both agrees that God did justice in creating the world, there has been a disparity in their view regarding the role of God in the occurrence of actions and events that causes human beings to suffer. Thus, Malebranche advances the theory of occasionalism, which holds that God is the only causal agent in the world, and is therefore responsible for all the evil that happens in the world because God’s creatures do not have significant causal abilities upon which to act (Brown, 82). Therefore, according to Malebranche, the acts of humans to cause an event or act that goes against the natural laws and causes suffering to humans is not out of the actual performance by the human beings, but a mere granting of an occasion to God by the people, so that God can act or express his attributes through the actions of the people (Brown, 87).
Simply put, therefore, it is Malebranche’s perspective that we utterly depend on God in every way, because God remains the only genuine cause of everything that happens in the world, whether good or bad (Brown, 84). Malebranche, therefore, promotes the view that there is no causal relationship between the mind and he body, and thus the reaction of the body in whichever form, good or bad, is simply an occasion for expressing God’s attributes since Malebranche held that what control human beings is definitely above humans (Brown, 82). .
