Ontological arguments are one of the main classes of arguments for
the existence of God, and have been influential from the Middle
Ages right up until the present time. This accessible volume offers
a comprehensive survey and assessment of them, starting with a
sequence of chapters charting their history - from Anselm and
Aquinas, via Descartes, Leibniz, Kant and Hegel, to Goedel,
Plantinga, Lewis and Tichy. This is followed by chapters on the
most important topics to have emerged in the discussion of
ontological arguments: the relationship between conceivability and
possibility, the charge that ontological arguments beg the
question, and the nature of existence. The volume as a whole shows
clearly how these arguments emerged and developed, how we should
think about them, and why they remain important today.
