  1. The Modal Perfection Argument for the Existence of a Supreme Being.Robert Maydole - 2003 - Philo 6 (2):299-313.
    The Modal Perfection Argument (MPA) for the existence of a Supreme Being is a new ontological argument that is rooted in the insights of Anselm, Leibniz and Gödel. Something is supreme if and only if nothing is possibly greater, and a perfection is a property that it is better to have than not. The premises of MPA are that supremity is a perfection, perfections entail only perfections, and the negation of a perfection is not a perfection. I do three things (...)

  4. On Oppy’s Objections to the Modal Perfection Argument.Robert Maydole - 2005 - Philo 8 (2):123-130.
    This paper is a reply to Graham Oppy’s “Maydole’s 2QS5 Argument,” published in Philo 7, 2. I argue that he fails to refute myModal Perfection Argument for the existence of a Supreme Being, and that it remains arguably sound in the face of his alleged counterexamples and parodies.

    Aquinas’ Third Way Modalized.Robert E. Maydole - 1998 - The Paideia Archive: Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 36:147-155.
    The Third Way is the most interesting and insightful of Aquinas' five arguments for the existence of God, even though it is invalid and has some false premises. With the help of a somewhat weak modal logic, however, the Third Way can be transformed into a argument which is certainly valid and plausibly sound. Much of what Aquinas asserted in the Third Way is possibly true even if it is not actually true. Instead of assuming, for example, that things which (...)
