This review is from: The Ontological Argument: From St. Anselm to Contemporary Philosophers (Mass Market Paperback)
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.
