Plantinga and Taylor did a fine job compiling parts of famous philosophical works that reflect the Ontological Argument, both for and against it. This book so small that you can fit it in your back pocket; but if you are looking for a short overview of the Ontological Argument this is a book for you. Excerpts include works from Anselm, Aquinas, Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Kant, Schopenhauer, G.E. Moore, Alston, J.N. Findlay, Hartshorne, and Malcom with responses to some of the proposed views. Regardless what your view is of the Ontological Argument, this book is a handy source that includes even a paragraph introduction to put the excerpt in context. I would suggest this book to anyone with the slightest interest in the matter.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
One must read gingerly through The Ontological Argument from St. Anslem to Contemporary Philosophers. The book is not for rank beginners to the subject. There are excerpts the works of philosophers who tackled the Ontological proof for God's existence, in their own words, with little editorial guidance. Anslem, Decartes, Spinoza, Leibnitz, Kant, and more modern thinkers like G.E. Moore, William P. Alston, J.N. Findlay, Charles Hartshorne, and Norman Malcolm.

The collection is interesting in that is provides detractors comments about the argument; it is strange in that it provides ontological arguments for the existence of God which don't exactly fit into the scheme as traditionally proscribed (as in Spinoza).

So, if you want to tip toe through the tulips of one of the strongest rational arguments for God's existence, give this book a shot. But the going will not be easy.
