Format: Paperback
Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), a German philosopher, has his book "The One Possible Basis for a Demonstration of the Existence of God" published at 1763. The thesis of the book consists of a refutation of the ontological argument proposed by Anselm, while demonstrating his own understanding of the nature of existence; In other words, Kant argues that existence is not a predicate but an absolute positing (or instantiation) of some qualities of some existing thing. What makes something existing is not the quality called "existence", according to Kant, but rather that positing those qualities hold true (rather than false) in so far as those qualities do really predicate on the entity. This particular understanding of the nature of existence as positing qualities that have truth-value (in so far as positing the qualities are true or false)is the fundamental thesis of Kant which is connected to another purpose that Kant had in mind: to show another possible way to demonstrate the existence of God which synthesizes the a priori approach (the ontological) and the a posteriori approach (argument from design). Kant argues that because the a priori understanding of the nature of God involves "intelligible order" or "harmony", whereas God's volition (omnipotence) and knowledge (omniscience) are based on his nature, and the a posteriori argument involves observing empirical order in physical reality (specifically matter)through the knowledge of science, the connection between the nature of the physical reality an God can be made. From observing the intelligible order in the empirical reality can help one to infer the existence of God because the nature of God itself is the source or ground of the possibility of intelligible order.Read more ›
