A Level: AQA • Edexcel • OCR • WJEC

A detailed investigation into Anselm of Canterbury's second presentation of the ontological argument, including how it works, and why it's convincing. This lesson provides a brief biography of Anselm of Canterbury, and covers the text of Proslogion. This includes discussion of his claim that it's impossible to think of that than which no greater can be conceived as nonexistent, which supports his argument that God must necessarily exist.
