In this work, Anselm began to introduce his theology which was rooted first in logical exposition, instead of religious belief, although to be sure, Anselm was a fervent Catholic and a member of the Buc monastery. In the Monologue, Anselm argues that even according to basic logic, the existence of God should be easily discovered. He even goes so far as to say that "Anyone of even moderate intellegence should be able to easily reason the existence of God.

This best thing would need to be God according to the logic. He argues that actually, even an atheist should be able to arrive at the same conclusion, offering what has been called the "Ontological Argument for the Existence of God.

The best conceivable extant thing is a loving God who would have created the world. This God would be personal, because it would be better to be personal than non-personal. The eventual conclusion of this line of reasoning is that such a God must exist, because it would be better to exist than not to exist.

In response, Anselm wrote the Responsio. His argument is that Gaunilo misunderstood the argument entirely. What is better: An inanimate piece of land, or a being like God? God would be better according to Anselm, so the ontological argument does not produce the belief in an imaginary island. Update this section!

Monologion

Hence, if the monolovion Nature exists as a whole, at one time, in every individual place, there are as many supreme Natures as there can be individual places; which it would be irrational to believe. If God is perfectly just, he cannot lie. Now we speak of things as being good in different degrees. But it is clear, for a like reason, that certain natures exist in a greater or less degree than others. Print Save Cite Email Share. First, then, let us see whether the supreme Nature can exist, as a whole, in individual places, either at once in all, or at different times, in different places. But it is clear that one may say, that what derives existence from something exists through anselk same thing; and what exists through something also derives existence from it.

Saint Anselm

Quod quidem diu tentare recusaui atque me cum reipsa comparans multis me rationibus excusare tentaui: quanto enim id quod petebant vsu sibi optabant facilius tanto mihi illud actu iniungebant difficilius. Tandem tamen victus tum precum modesta importunitate tum studii eorum non contemnenda honestate inuitus quidem propter rei difficultatem et ingenii mei imbecillitatem sed libenter propter eorum charitatem quantum potui secundum ipsorum diffinitionem effeci. Ad quod cum ea spe sim adductus vt quidquid facerem illis solis a quibus exigebatur esset notum et paulo post idipsum vt vilem rem fastidientibus contemptu esset obruendum: scio enim me in eo non tam precantibus satisfacere eisdem potuisse quam precibus me prosequentibus finem posuisse. Quapropter si cui videbitur quod in eodem opusculo aliquid protulerim quod aut nimis nouum sit aut a veritate dissentiat rogo ne statim me aut presumptorem nouitatum aut falsitatis assertorem exclamet; sed prius libros prefati doctoris Augustini de Trinitate diligenter perspiciat deinde secundum eos opusculum meum diiudicet.
