9780889460386: From Belief to Understanding: A Study of Anselm's Proslogion Argument on the Existence of God

This text provides an analysis of Amselm's "Prosologion" II and III and argues that it presents an extended, three-stage argument, which is not vulnerable to the objections of Gaunilo, Kant and others. The final chapters re-assess the force and relevance of the argument.
