    Published in the St. Here Anselm was called by the Pope to a place of honour and bidden to take the chief part in the discussion. After a night spent in meditation, he at last discovers what be has been seeking for years: the incontrovertible argument in favor of the Christian dogma, and he regards himself as fortunate in having found, not only the proof of the existence of God, but his peace of soul. The pit of perdition is wide open. I, which says, "The fool says in his heart 'There is no God'," Anselm believed that it should be a simple matter to demonstrate God's existence. This argument has been endlessly controversial throughout the history of philosophy, garnering the criticisms of St.

    Daily mental prayer is morally necessary in order to avoid mortal sin for any significant period of time. The third supposition, which makes each of the 'first causes' depend on all the rest, is absurd; for we cannot hold that a thing has for its cause and condition of existence a thing of which it is itself the cause and condition. But they existed eternally for God and in God, as ideas; they existed before their creation in the sense that the Creator foresaw them and predestined them for existence. In religion faith plays the part played by experience in the understanding of the things of this world.

    On returning from his ineffectual Welsh campaign William brought a charge against the Archbishop in regard to the contingent he had furnished and required him to meet this charge in the King's court. Other early writers on Anselm, such as John of Salisbury, add some new details, but their account of the Saint is largely drawn from Eadmer. This incident had a deep influence on his career in England. The negotiations ended with Anselm being "given the choice of exile or total submission": if he left, William declared he would seize Canterbury and never again receive Anselm as archbishop; if he were to stay, William would impose his fine and force him to swear never again to appeal to the papacy. This argument, which has been termed the ontological argument, found an opponent worthy of Anselm in Gaunilo, a monk of Marmoutiers in Touraine.

The life and times of St. Anselm book

When the work was readied for publication aroundAnselm renamed it Monologion de ratione fidei, meaning a monologue or soliloquy on reasons for the faith.

The King's repentance passed away with his sickness and Anselm soon saw signs of trouble. His arguments were afterwards committed to writing in his treatise on this subject.

In the first year of his office, he visited Canterbury where he was welcomed by Lanfranc. At the University of Wisconsin in Madison, she earned a Ph.

Besides being one of the fathers of scholastic theologyAnselm fills an important place in the history of philosophic speculation.

In fear of death from an illness, William agreed to the conditions, and Anselm was consecrated on December 4, I implore and I exhort you, that you receive not the grace of God in vain 2 Cor. Vol I. The Archbishop insisted on going to Pope Urbanwhose authority he had already acknowledged, and, as he had told the King, this was one of the conditions on which alone he would accept the archbishopric.

God is justice as such, goodness as such, wisdom as such, happiness as such, truth as such, being as such. Over the next four years tension mounted between king and archbishop over William's refusal to repair churches, to acknowledge Urban II as pope, and to give up his claim to lay investiture of the clergy.

We have in ourselves, he says, the idea of an absolutely perfect being. Gilt spine text. He assumes, a priori, that revelation and reason are in perfect accord. He finally was consecrated Archbishop of Canterbury 4 December, Almost immediately this ontological argument, as Kant was to call it, was criticized politely but very insistently by Gaunilo, a monk of the abbey of Marmoutier in his Liber pro insipiente For the Fool ; Anselm replied to this in his Liber apologeticus.

William now sent envoys to Rome to get the pallium.
