While providing a much needed explication of process philosophy, Rescher makes a persuasive argument for restoring it to its place in the mainstream of philosophical inquiry." "Process philosophy views temporality, activity, and change as the essential factors for our understanding of the real - process has priority over product, both ontologically and epistemically. Rescher examines the movement's historical origins as a major line of thought in the work of such philosophers as Heracleitus, Leibniz, Bergson, Peirce, William James, and especially A.N. Whitehead." "Written by one of our foremost philosophers, this new text will be especially welcomed by professors as a perspicuous and informative introduction to process philosophy."--Jacket." ;
