According to Anselm’s Proslogin his Ontological argument is purely based on philosophical concepts and logical interactions (Adams 28). Anselm explains existence of God from a spiritual perspective. In that humans cannot find God if God does not assist them in do so. Anselm Argument is summarized into two major parts. He describes God an object than that nothing mightier can be perceived.
