reality and the understanding. (Reductio ad absurdum).❖The X referred to by “That Island” is limited to the category of an Island. Whereas God isreferred to as “that” hence placing no limit.Kant’s Response to Anselm❖Kant is in search of a good butler.➢A good butler must:■Be polite■Speak German■Look Good in a tuxedo.■Make sure that the butler EXISTS.❖Kant is saying that EXISTENCE is not a predicate. (Not a real quality)❖When you are saying God exists, his existence is not a quality as it lacks descriptive factors. And thus the definition of God is empty of his existence.Norman Malcolm: “Anselm’s ontological Arguments” Philosophical Review (1962)❖Here it is said that EXISTENCE IS NOT A PREDICATE.➢A Butler that is■Polite■Speaks German■Looks good in a tux■And is a necessary existence.❖BUT NECESSARY EXISTENCE IS A PREDICATE.❖“God is defined as that best necessarily existent being.”➢This either makes sense, that God is necessary.➢Or it is incoherent (contradictory), and God cannot exist because the word God is meaningless.
