  • The Ontological Argument: Kant Challenges.
    • Opposed Descarte's version.
      • Objected to proving necessary existence of God
      • Did this with the triangle argument.
    • The Triangle Argument.
      • A triangle has three sides with three angles that add up to 180 degrees.
      • If you dismiss any of these predicates it would no longer be a triangle.
      • You can define anything but whether it matches your definition in reality is another matter.
    • Existence is not a predicate of perfection.
      • To say something exists tells you nothing more about it.
    • Definition of God = synthetic.
