Philosophia 35 (3-4):341-350 (2007)
Anselm said that God is that than which nothing greater can be conceived, but he believed that it followed that God is greater than can be conceived. The second formulaâessential to sound theologyâpoints to the mystery of God. The usual way of preserving divine mystery is the via negativa, as one finds in Aquinas. I formalize Hartshorneâs central argument against negative theology in the simplest modal system T. I end with a defense of Hartshorneâs way of preserving the mystery of God, which he locates in the actuality of God rather than in the divine existence or essence. This paper was delivered during the APA Pacific 2007 Mini-Conference on Models of God
