Privation is a philosophical term which, according to Plato, is limitation, imperfection, the inherent condition of all finite existence, and the necessary cause of evil. Leibnitz (Causa Dei, § 69, 72; Essai suo la bonte de Dieu, 1iere partie, § 29, 31; 3ieme partie, § 378), after Augustine, Aquinas, and others, held similar views.
