In this compilation of St. Anselm's most important works, St. Anselm uses reason and philosophical argument to defend the Christian faith against non-believers. St. Anselm stresses the importance of our rational nature as humans, encouraging Christians that they should be "always ready to convince anyone who demands of them a reason of that hope which is in us." In his Proslogium, Anselm presents the Ontological Argument, an argument for the existence of God in which God is defined as "a being than which none greater can be conceived." In Behalf of the Fool by Gaunilon, St. Anselm discusses a counterargument offered by his contemporary, Gaunilon, a Benedictine monk who questioned St. Anselm's definition of God. Monologium considers the attributes of God, while Cur Deus Homo ("Why God Became Man") addresses difficult questions about the Incarnation. This collection is a fine example of the intertwining of medieval philosophy and Christian apologetics. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer

PRODUCT DETAIL

Anselm Saint Of Canterbury

Anselm of Canterbury, far and away the best philosopher of the eleventh century, described his philosophical work as faith seeking understanding. Following Augustine of Hippo, he argues that without faith he could not find the convincing rational arguments that establish understanding and that convincing evidence of a contradiction to the faith would invalidate any argument. Nonetheless, faith with understanding is better than faith alone. He avoids the citation of authorities in his writings, using argument alone to establish his points (something for which his teacher Lanfranc chided him), and he insists on answering every possible objection to his views with clear reasons against it. He is but little interested in the task of reconciling authorities or finding a unity of doctrine in the thought of the various Church Fathers. However, Augustine is, in fact, his constant inspiration, providing him even with the dialogue form he uses in his works. Anselm's thought is rooted in dialectical and grammatical technique. He is particularly skilled at resolving difficulties by uncovering the true logical form of expressions with misleading grammatical forms. His writings are without exception a feast for the analytical mind, yet accessible even to a beginner.
