The ens realissimum and necessary being in the critique of pure reason

Religious Studies 37 (4):467-474 (2001)
Abstract
Just prior to The Critique of Pure Reason's examination of the various arguments for God's existence, Kant discusses the conceptual relationship between the idea of an ens realissimum and that of a necessary being. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the extent to which this discussion informs his claim that the cosmological argument depends upon the ontological argument.
