This chapter examines Anselm's arguments in the Monologion for the existence of God, showing how those arguments fail because Anselm illicitly takes for granted the metaphysically peculiar nature of the being whose existence he is trying to prove. The failure of these arguments points to Anselm's need for a proof that explicitly and legitimately argues from the nature of God to the existence of God.
