Einar Duenger Bohn, "Anselmian Theism and Indefinitely Extensible Perfection", The Philosophical Quarterly 62, Issue 249 (October 2012), 671-683.
Abstract: The Anselmian Thesis is the thesis that God is that than which nothing greater can be thought. In this paper, I argue that such a notion of God is incoherent due to greatness being indefinitely extensible: roughly, for any great being that can be, there is another one that is greater, so there cannot be a being than which nothing greater can be.
