The article is a discussion of J. R. Spitzer’s paper, “Proofs of the Existence of God” (International Philosophical Quarterly 2001, vol. 41, no 2). In the first part, the author discusses Spitzer’s views against the background of the medieval dispute about the eternal existence of the world. In the second part, he discusses Spitzer’s argument concerning the actualization of potentialities (including a variant of this found in the conception of B. Lonergan).
