Abstract

The connection between logic and theology in St Anselms 's thought proves a case for the history of logic in generaI, namely that it is impossible to provide a satisfactory account of the calculative powers of the mind by ignoring the whole range of its intellective activities. Accordingly, a survey of ancient discussions on transcendent forms proves itself to be a necessary prerequisite for the understanding of Anselm 's conception of the import ofparonymous terms, which in turn cogently supports Karl Barth's intimation of a "noetic" vs "ontic" discernment of Anselm 's well-known "id quo nihil maius cogitari potest".
