1.7 In Proslogion (~1079), Anselm puts forth his famous argument for the existence of God:
- If we define God as "than which no greater can be thought"
- and we can think of such a God,
- the God surely exists
- for existence is greater than non-existence.
How would you answer Anselm? Gaunilo?
Taking Anselm's argument as one point in an argument for the existence of God, does Gaunilo's critique still stand?
