Title:
    HEGEL'S MODAL ONTOLOGICAL ARGUMENT

Committee:
    Director: Dr. Antón Barba-Kay
    Readers: Dr. Michael Rohlf and Dr. Timothy Noone

 
Topic Details:

Hegel does not simply critique the ontological argument of Anselm, Descartes, Leibniz, and others. He also presents his own argument, but this is not generally recognized. His argument is formal, but is never formalized. This dissertation seeks to call out all formal characteristics of the argument and reveal the ways in which it is integrated into the rest of Hegel's philosophical system.
