The Only Possible Argument in Support of a Demonstration of the Existence of God (German: Der einzig mögliche Beweisgrund zu einer Demonstration des Daseins Gottes) is a book by Immanuel Kant, published in 1763, in the earlier period of his philosophy which he later saw as "dogmatic slumber". In it, Kant questions both the ontological argument for God (as proposed by Saint Anselm) and the argument from design.

I love this book. Kant is a brilliant mind.

Didn't get very far in this one but it's valuable but I don't have the time to spend anymore time on lesser works of Kant like this one.

Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), a German philosopher, has his book "The One Possible Basis for a Demonstration of the Existence of God" published at 1763. The thesis of the book consists of a refutation of the ontological argument proposed by Anselm, while demonstrating his own understanding of the nature of existence; In other words, Kant argues that existence is not a predicate but an absolute positing (or instantiation) of some qualities of some existing thing. What makes something existing is not the quality called "existence", according to Kant, but rather that positing those qualities hold true (rather than false) in so far as those qualities do really predicate on the entity. This particular understanding of the nature of existence as positing qualities that have truth-value (in so far as positing the qualities are true or false)is the fundamental thesis of Kant which is connected to another purpose that Kant had in mind: to show another possible way to demonstrate the existence of God which synthesizes the a priori approach (the ontological) and the a posteriori approach (argument from design). Kant argues that because the a priori understanding of the nature of God involves "intelligible order" or "harmony", whereas God's volition (omnipotence) and knowledge (omniscience) are based on his nature, and the a posteriori argument involves observing empirical order in physical reality (specifically matter)through the knowledge of science, the connection between the nature of the physical reality an God can be made. From observing the intelligible order in the empirical reality can help one to infer the existence of God because the nature of God itself is the source or ground of the possibility of intelligible order. For Kant, positing the existence of God involves positing the pure intelligibility of orderliness (or harmony) that is also manifested in the physical reality; this approach is a synthesis of a priori argument and a posteriori argument, although arguably the purpose of this synthesis leans more in favor of the ontological approach than the empirical approach.

In relation to the the debate in Philosophy of Religion (Theism vs. Atheism), it is unfortunate that many people have not paid much attention to this interesting and creative approach, since Philosophy of Religion traditionally sticks to different argumentation (teleological, cosmological, ontological, etc.). Interestingly, Kant is known more for his moral argument for the existence of God which involves believing in God in order to believe in being able to achieve or reach the Highest Good (summum bonum), which is considered relatively weak argument among both theists and atheists alike. While understandably he is known for his moral argument, his own unique ontological argument (along with its application to the argument from design) is as equally interesting both philosophically and historically.

Philosophically because Kant shows that you do not need to stick with only one kind of argumentation, but find a way to relate them together by subsuming one into another. Kant shows that the nature of God itself need not to be merely transcendental or ineffable mystery, but something that is self-communicable or self-revelational in the physical/empirical world we inhabit. We do not need to be infinitely distant from God but also intellectually intimate with the Highest Being by witnessing the intelligible order in nature; such intelligible order is not the byproduct of only God's omniscience and omnipotence (as many conventional theist would think) but of God's nature which is reflecting itself unto the physical nature. This approach, I think, is very profound. Although I am an Atheist, I think that this approach is unfortunately underrated.

Historically, this book has recieved positive reception from a famous Jewish Philosopher Moses Mendelssohn, and this positive review from Mendelssohn has made Kant very popular and prominent philosopher in Germany. Other reviews followed likewise as positive reviews about Kant's argument for the existence of God. More importantly, however, Kant's critical philosopher (Transcendental Philosophy) continues to hold onto the view of the nature of existence as positing qualities. Kant's Critical Philosophy is also a reaction against his Pre-Critical Philosophy (The One Possible Basis for a Demosntration of the Existence of God) because in his Pre-Critical Period Kant was a Leibnizian rationalist who believes that physical reality ruled by the laws of nature is the manifestation (or correspons to) the fundamental principles in the Divine Mind. This Theocentric Approach, common among theistic rationalists, is something that Kant later criticizes in favor of the Anthropocentric Approach in which reality is understood through the a priori concepts or forms, along with a priori intuitions, of the human mind. What this implies is that we cannot have true understanding of what reality is in itself (noumena), including the nature of God. So in a sense, someoen interested in history of philosophy and Kant ought to read this book.

Overall, this book is, in my opinion, one of the memorable books to read in respect to my interest in Philosophy of Religion in General.
