Both presumptions and conjectures are closely connected to the question of the burden of proof for presumptions lead to a shift of the burden. Thus, these notions play an essential role in the practice of litigation: the odds to win a given case are stacked against the party that has to bear the burden of proof. The paper analyses three different texts which bear upon the topic and stem from different phases of Leibniz’s production: the Elementa Juris Naturalis (1671), the De legum interpretatione, rationibus, applicatione, systemate (1678/1679), and the Nouveaux Essais sur l’entendement humain (1704, published posthumously in 1765). The aim of the paper is to elucidate how Leibniz developed a subtle theory of legal presumptions and conjectures. Moreover, the paper attempts a first formal reconstruction of this theory.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2016-03-18T07:53:57Z</dc:date> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Presumptions and Conjectures in Leibniz’s Legal Theory</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
