Formulations of Anselm's ontological argument have been the subject of a number of recent studies. After examining these studies, the authors respond to criticisms that have surfaced in reaction to their earlier papers, identify a more refined representation of Anselm’s argument on the basis of new research, and compare their representation, which analyzes "that than which none greater can be conceived" as a definite description, to a representation that analyzes it as an arbitrary name.
