Phenomenological Argument for the Existence of God

Author: Carney, John
This book examines the contribution of Husserlian and post-Husserlian phenomenology to Hegel’s ontological argument. It represents a new approach to the question of the existence of God in that it combines two schools of thought generally considered incompatible. The fundamental question with which Hegel struggled – and one infer the existence of the infinite from the existence of the finite – receives important philosophical contributions from latter-day phenomenology.
