The aim of the article is to explore the meanings of the concept of system in Leibniz´s philosophy. It shows, that practically there is no such meaning as attributed to his philosophy since Kant (i. e. a unified and complete, so called architectonical way of unveiling and explication of doctrines). In Leibniz a system refers either to a hypothesis (pre-established harmony), or the real order of the bodies in this world, or even to the encyclopedic classification of knowledge, but never to any kind of representation, be it in philosophy or in metaphysics, which we could call systematic. Although Leibniz himself wished to give his philosophy a systematic form, his project does not correspond with the way the concept of system is understood in his writings.
