Anselm‘s ontological argument

Anselm's ontological argument is a philosophical argument, made from an ontological basis.

Anselm defines God as "the greatest being" and argues that if such being can exist in the mind, then it must also exist in reality. If it existed only in the mind, then an even greater being must be possible—one who exists both in mind and in reality. Therefore, this greatest possible being must exist in reality.
