On Metcalf ’s Objections to the Modal Perfection Argument

Philo 8 (2):134-136 (2005)
  Copy   BIBTEX


This paper is a reply to Thomas Metcalf ’s “Entailment and ontological arguments: Reply to Maydole,” published in Philo 8, 2. Iargue that he fails to refute my Modal Perfection Argument for the existence of a Supreme Being, and that it remains arguably sound in the face of his alleged counterexamples and parody.
