|The Existence of God|
An Exposition and Application of Fregean Meta-Ontology
Hansen, Stig B

This study breaks new ground on the question of the existence of God. It innovatively combines biblical scholarship with an analysis of existence drawn from the writings of the philosopher Gottlob Frege. It shows that the strength of Freges approach is its emphasis on the notions of proper name and predicate; this in turn sheds new light on important elements of theological language. Finally, the Fregean approach in this book is defended against objections drawn from readings of Ludwig Wittgensteins Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus.
