Sammanfattning : Incorporating the conceptual resources of the ontological argument for the existence of God into the underlying rationale of the cosmological ditto, I here present and defend a ‘cosmontological’ synthesis: an a posteriori argument for the existence of an all-perfect GOD: a being who, in virtue of being whatever it is better to be than not to be, is that than which a greater cannot be thought. Central to this synthesis is a very plausible principle called Exclusion: For any class (or property extension) C, if C is non-empty then there is an explanation for the non-emptiness of C if and only if there is at least one non-member of C which causes C to be non-empty.
