Summary/Abstract: In the present paper we will systematize the theoretical premises and the deducing of Leibniz’s Principle of Sufficient Reason, as well as will examine its potential as generally valid law of thought and knowledge. Initially, the ontological bases of PSR must be delineated: the structure of existence, the defining of the “individual substance”, the Law of Continuity, which leads to the “ultimate ground” and from here to the concept of the “choice” of the supreme substance. We will analyze the formulations of PSR, which Leibniz gives in Monadologie and in his letters. In order to form the entire logical potential of PSR, we will look for its general parameters in Kant’s concept of thoroughgoing determination and in Hegel’s projection of the ground with its structure and with the interesting formula of the “complete ground”. All this leads to the perspective of discovering the total range of PSR, as founded and formulated by Leibniz, and gives us the opportunity to consider its new formulation related to the ground, which is completed in absolute sense with all its parameters.
