Necessary Existence breaks ground on one of the deepest questions anyone ever asks: why is there anything? Pruss and Rasmussen present an original defence of the hypothesis that there is a necessarily existing being capable of providing an ultimate foundation for the existence of all things. The arguments exhibit both rigor and clarity, and they provide a tool for truth-seekers to expand their understanding of the foundation of existence.
