Theological Union, USA)

Please register in advance!

Abstract: Several emendations of Gödel's modal ontological argument have
been proposed persevering the intended conclusion of God's necessary
existence while avoiding the problem of modal collapse, which expresses
that there are no contingent truths (everything is determined, there is no
free will). In this webinar, we summarize recent computer-supported
verification studies on some of these modern variants of the ontological
argument. Our purpose is to provide further evidence that the interaction
with computer technology can not only enable the formal assessment of
ontological arguments but can, in fact, help to sharpen our conceptual
understanding of the notions and concepts involved.

With best wishes,

Francisco de Assis Mariano
