This work examines the contribution of Husserlian and post-Husserlian phenomenology to Hegel's ontological argument. It represents an alternative 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 - can one infer the existence of the infinite from the existence of the finite - receives important philosophical contributions from latter-day phenomenology.


Introduction - the phenomenological argument; the challenge of Kant; Hegel's logic; Husserl's philosophy of mind; Kant, Heidegger and the metaphysics of metaphysics; the informal and the formal argument; conclusion - revisiting the ontological proof.
