schema:description""In 1922, Charles Hartshorne, then an aspiring young philosopher, wrote to Edgar Sheffield Brightman, a preeminent philosopher of religion and one of the most prolific members of the Boston School of Personalism. For twenty-three years, the two carried out an unusually rich and intensive correspondence, and remarkably, almost every letter was preserved."@en
