A Dilemma For The Proponent Of The Transcendental Argument For God’s Existence

Philosophia Christi 11 (2):465-470 (2009)


The transcendental argument for God’s existence claims that the existence of the Triune God is a metaphysically necessary precondition for the most basic features of human life and experience. Philosopher Sean Choi has recently argued that TAG is best understood as having the following argument pattern: p, Necessarily, if p, then G, and therefore G. In this note, I pose a dilemma argument for the proponent of the transcendental argument. My hope is that the dilemma argument will spur further development and clarification of exactly what the transcendental argument is.
