The arguments in favor of the existence of God have been of central importance throughout the history of philosophy. Among them, the ontological argument stands out for its peculiarity and influence, even today. The dispute over its contemporary formulations and the objections against them, shows a strong influence of the formulations and objections coined in German rationalism. For this reason, this project will focus on the critical analysis of the formulations of the ontological arguments of Leibniz, Wolff and Baumgarten, on the one hand, and the objections against them of Crusius and Kant, on the other hand. The results will be presented in a paper at a congress, in an article, and in a book.
