This paper brings together some aspects of the Platonic and Neoplatonic inheritance in Leibniz’s thought. I will briefly discuss some features of Leibniz’s reworking of this tradition with respect to his theory of the divine infinite, his conception of primary matter, and his introduction of the notion of metaphysical evil. I will argue that the concept of creaturely limitation, interpreted according to a Neoplatonic blueprint, plays a pivotal role in these three notions, providing a key which unlocks fundamental aspects of Leibniz’s metaphysics.
