After Whitehead : Rescher on process metaphysics by Michel Weber( Book )

13 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Reschers Process Metaphysics (1996) was published, it was widely acclaimed as a major step towards the academic recognition of a mode of thought that has otherwise been confined within sharp scholarly boundaries. Of course it is not an easy book: despite its stylistic clarity, it remains the complex outcome of a lifes work in most areas of philosophy. The goal of the present volume is to systematically unfold the vices and virtues of Process Metaphysics, and thereby to specify the contemporary state of affairs in process thought. To do so, the editor has gathered one focused contribution
Subjectivity, process, and rationality by Pierfrancesco Basile( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and German and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume gathers prominent international scholars to celebrate the complex legacy of Reiner Wiehl, whose work has been instrumental in bringing together the European tradition of prima philosophia as represented by Plato, Spinoza, Kant and Hegel, with the adventurous speculative renewal of the twentieth century by Alfred North Whitehead. Grouped into four sections (Process and Universals, Nature and Subjectivity, Ethics and Civilization, Psychology and Phenomenology) the fifteen papers collected in this book cover a range of topics which is as wide and as intertwined as Wiehl's own expertis
Whitehead's pancreativism : Jamesian applications by Michel Weber( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whitehead's Pancreativism: The Basics has provided tools to understand Whitehead secundum Whitehead. We now seek to bring him in dialogue with James. It will be a pragmatic dialogue looking for two types of synergy: to establish the relevance of a Jamesian background to read Whitehead, and to adumbrate how Whitehead can help us understand the stakes of James's works. After one hundred years of scholarship, it appears that James's legacy has mainly been studied from the perspective of his own blend of pragmatism and that this blend has moreover chiefly been put into dialogue with Peirce and ana
Whitehead's pancreativism : the basics by Michel Weber( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is one question that any potential reader who suspects that Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947) might be important for past, contemporary, and future philosophy inevitably raises: how should I read Whitehead? How can I make sense of this incredibly dense tissue of imaginative systematizing, spread over decades of work in disciplines so different and specialized as algebra, geometry, logic, relativistic physics and philosophy of science? Accordingly, this monograph has two main complementary objectives. The first one is to propose a set of efficient hermeneutical tools to get the reader st
Creativity and its discontents : the response to Whitehead's Process and reality by Michel Weber( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""I do not expect a good reception from professional philosophers"" wrote Whitehead in 1929, immediately after the publication of Process and Reality. Indeed, it took nearly thirty years before scholars seriously started to try to decipher the book taken as a whole. And there remains today ""professional"" Whiteheadians who claim that this work can - or even should - be bracketed by anyone wishing to get a clear picture of Whitehead's true speculative agenda. Creativity and Its Discontents aims to provide evidence of the conditions for this state of affairs by gathering and contextualizing all
Neuropsychology and philosophy of mind in process : essays in honor of Jason W. Brown by Maria Pąchalska( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume celebrates the life achievements of Jason W. Brown, who, along with Jean Piaget, Heinz Werner, Alexander Luria and the Würzburg school, has significantly contributed to the development of a process-based theory of brain/mind capable of challenging the currently fashionable modularist or cybernetic approaches to understanding human thought and feeling. As a paradigm, Brown's microgenetic theory is thus applicable in both brain science (where Brown was inspired by the pioneering work of Schilder and Pick) and the philosophy of mind (where the influence of Bergson, Whitehead, Cassirer

The roar of awakening : a Whiteheadian dialogue between Western psychotherapies and Eastern worldviews by George E Derfer( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary goal of this volume is to describe the contemporary state of affairs in Western psychotherapy, and to do so in a Whiteheadian spirit: with genuine openness to the relative ways in which creativity, beauty, truth, and peace manifest themselves in various cultural traditions. This Whiteheadian Dialogue explores afresh an important cross-elucidatory path: what have we, and what can be learned from a dialogue with Eastern worldviews? In order to generate meaningful contrasts between these different systems of thought, all the papers address common core issues. On one hand, how does the

La science et le monde moderne d'Alfred North Whitehead : actes des Journées d'étude internationales tenues à l'Université catholique de Louvain, les 30-31 mai et 1 juin 2003 = Alfred North Whitehead's science and the modern world : proceedings of the Second International "Chromatiques whiteheadiennes" Conference by Chromatiques Whiteheadiennes( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in French and English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second international Chromatiques whiteheadiennes conference was devoted exclusively to the exegesis and contextualization of Whitehead's Science and the Modern World (1925). In order to elucidate the meaning and significance of this epoch-making work, the Proceedings are designed to form ""companion"" volume. With one paper devoted to each of its thirteen chapters, the Proceedings aim, on the one hand, to identify the specific contribution of each chapter to Whitehead's own research program - that is to say, to put its categories into perspective by means of an internal analysis- and, on
Alfred North Whitehead : de l'algèbre universelle à la théologie naturelle : actes des journées d'étude internationales tenues à l'Université de Liège les 11-12-13 octobre 2001 by Michel Weber( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les premières journées " Chromatiques " se sont donné pour objectif de faciliter une réflexion globale sur la trajectoire conceptuelle du philosophe et mathématicien britannique Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947). Afin de mener le lecteur au cœur de l'ontologie organique de l'époque de Harvard, il est en effet urgent d'élucider Whitehead à partir de lui-même, de montrer - sans être victime d'une " illusion rétrospective " - la continuité qui s'atteste dans un développement idéel qui exploite cependant quelques notables " changements d'amure ". Les contributions au colloque, placées sous le signe du commerce avec les textes eux-mêmes, furent traversées par une double tension : d'une part, l'éclairement systématique d'un aspect technique d'une des époques spéculatives de l'auteur ; d'autre part, la mise en horizon de ce questionnement ponctuel à l'aide d'une perspective globale sur le cheminement spéculatif whiteheadien

Les principes de la connaissance naturelle d'Alfred North Whitehead = Alfred North Whitehead's Principles of natural knowledge by Michel Weber( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth international ""Chromatiques whiteheadiennes"" conference was devoted to the philosophy of the natural sciences that is characteristic of Whitehead's ""London Epoch"". Continuing the efforts of the Liège (2001) and Louvain-la-Neuve (2003) meetings, the conference focused on An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Natural Knowledge (1919/1925) which constitutes Whitehead's pioneering work in the field. All its main traits -starting with the Method of Extensive Abstraction- are here questioned anew. Les quatrièmes journées "" Chromatiques "" interrogèrent la philosophie des sciences de
Essai sur la gnose de Harvard Whitehead apocryphe by Michel Weber( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'objet de ce livre consiste en une éludication croisée de la philosophie organique whiteheadienne et de la gnose thomasienne. Il cherche à répondre à deux questions. La philosophie de l'événement, du processus ou du procès, d'Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947) possède-t-elle, volens nolens, un fond gnostique syrien? L'évangile apocryphe de Thomas, le gnostique juif qui a couché par écrit l'enseignement de Jésus probablement trente ans après son décès, offrant ainsi une source qui pourrait être plus ancienne que les évangiles canoniques et leur hypothétique texte-racine Q, gagne-t-il a être lu à partir de prémisses whiteheadiennes?

Handbook of Whiteheadian process thought( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gathering 115 entries written by 101 internationally renowned experts in their fields, the Handbook of Whiteheadian Process Thought aims at canvassing the current state of knowledge in Whiteheadian scholarship and at identifying promising directions for future investigations through (internal) cross-elucidation and (external) interdisciplinary development. Two kinds of entries are weaved together in order to interpret Whitehead secundum Whitehead and to read him from the vantage point of interdisciplinary and crossdisciplinary research. The "thematic" entries provide (i) a broad contextualisation of the issue at stake; (ii) a focus on Whitehead's treatment (if any) or of a possible Whiteheadian treatment of the issue; (iii) a history of relevant scholarship; (iv) a personal assessment by the Author. The "biographical" entries provide (i) a brief vita of the targeted thinker; (ii) a sketch of his/her categories relevant to the Whiteheadian scholarship; (iii) a personal assessment of the actual (or possible) Whiteheadian semantic transfer to or from the thinker
