Summary/Abstract: The concept of God in this essay is analyzed through similarities and differences of its forging and development in philosophy of Descartes, and the tradition of scholastic philosophy. The author is trying to reveal the way in which Descartes’ thought was determined by this philosophical tradition, both in its critical aspects and in the view of continuity of history of philosophy. Given analysis is to reveal the mechanisms of Descartes’ reforging of scholastical idea of God and the strategies of its argumentative foundation in the philosophical concept of God.
