Russel's theory states that providing an analysis of linguistic and logical properties of a description is vital to provide clarity in a philosophical debate. Anselm's theory revolve around the state of being or the state of the universe. He defines God as "That which nothing greater can be conceived"

Russles theory can attack Anselm's theory in that Bertrand's is more descriptive and anselm's rather imaginative in that it does not dwell exactly on what is perceived but rather what is imagined
