On Kant’s hidden ambivalence toward existence in his critique of the ontological argument

To be published in Special Issue on Formal Approaches to the Ontological Argument

Giovanni Mion

The paper explores Kant’s attitude toward existence in the Critique of Pure
Reason
. It has two main goals: first, it argues that Kant’s criticisms of the
ontological argument might be vitiated by an ambivalence toward existence,
and then it attempts to provide a solution to the ambivalence in question.
Finally, since my reading of Kant assumes that for him, existence is governed
by the rule of existential generalization, I also prove the following biconditional:
existence is not a real predicate iff existential generalization is valid.
