The main goal of this article is to answer the question whether Leibniz’s philosophy, distinguishing two worlds: of culture and of nature, has its reflection on his political thought. It turns out that in Leibniz’s political papers existed on Earth a perfect political order. He thought that it was realised in the medieval hierarchy of importance of European states, headed by the Empire. Leibniz equips the world of culture with the characteristics of the world of nature. The key to explain such a vision be comes philosopher’s metaphysics and epistemology. What is interesting in this matter, Leibniz in his political papers does not refer to these criteria of description.
