Résumé : This study attempts to understand Anselm's argument in the context of the author's body of work. After explaining the process of the argument, it aims to re-examine Anselm's project, first in the Proslogion, and then in relation to the discursive approach in the Monologion. What emerges is an attempt by the rational creature to elevate itself toward God by rationally thinking about its creator's mode of existence. In the process, it experiments with and identifies the limits of its intelligence.
