The logic of the ontological argument

Anselm’s ontological argument purports to be an a priori proof of God’s existence. Anselm starts with premises that do not depend on experience for their justification and then proceeds by purely logical means to the conclusion that God exists. His aim is to refute the fool who says in his heart that there is no God (Psalms 14:1). This fool has two important features.”

From “Anselm’s Ontological Argument”, from Princeton University

An excellent, clear – if challenging – explanation of the logic of the ontological argument from Princeton University.
