Author's Introduction

    In a recent issue of the Philosophical Review, Professor Norman Malcolm defended the ontological proof for the existence of God. In the pages that follow I propose to raise certain objections to his argument, objections far from new. They are to be found, explicitly or by implication, in Kant's discussions of modality1 and existence, and they have become the common coin of philosophy. Though Malcolm is quite aware of what they are, it is not clear that he has successfully met them.
