“At a deeper level, I suspect that the [ontological] argument can be thoroughly understood only by someone who has a view of that human ‘form of life’ that gives rise to the idea of an infinitely great being, who views it from the inside not just from the outside and who has, therefore, at least some inclination to partake in that religious form of life.”

—Norman Malcolm, “Anselm’s Ontological Arguments,” in Knowledge and Certainty: Essays and Lectures (Cornell 1963), p. 162.
