This essay aims to outline the ontological basis that determines the moral action of the virtuous man in Christian Wolff's practical philosophy. Therefore, the dialectic between the conceptual pair obligatio-officium and the idea of lex was adopted as interpretative key, in order to bring out the notion of consensus, which characterises the moral action of the virtuous man. The latter, having fully developed his faculties (the cognitive and the appetitive one), reflects divine perfection and becomes artifex of his own happiness, actualising what is morally necessary in all his free actions.

Abstract

This essay aims to outline the ontological basis that determines the moral action of the virtuous man in Christian Wolff's practical philosophy. Therefore, the dialectic between the conceptual pair obligatio-officium and the idea of lex was adopted as interpretative key, in order to bring out the notion of consensus, which characterises the moral action of the virtuous man. The latter, having fully developed his faculties (the cognitive and the appetitive one), reflects divine perfection and becomes artifex of his own happiness, actualising what is morally necessary in all his free actions.
