9780791439449: Concerning Creativity: A Comparison of Chu Hsi, Whitehead, and Neville (SUNY Series in Religious Studies) (Suny Series, Religious Studies)

This work examines the philosophies and theologies of three thinkers - Chu Hsi, Alfred North Whitehead, and Robert C. Neville - separated by time, space, and culture. In so doing John H. Berthrong provides a suggestive and successful comparison of creativity as a cross-cultural theme while introducing Neo-Confucianism as a sophisticated dialogue partner with modern Western speculative philosophy and theology.

Review:

This is an important work. Rarely does one encounter the sophistication exemplified by this author to be able to handle philosophical and theological issues in both Eastern and Western paradigmatic modes. While the book is introduced with emphasis upon Whitehead, Neville, and Chu Hsi, the author moves the work far beyond these three figures by taking his analysis to a point of synthesis. It leaves the reader with a sense of engagement and on-going process that welcomes the next stage of development in the beginning of cross-cultural dialogue. Rodney L. Taylor, University of Colorado at Boulder
This book addresses issues that are of great importance to both process thinkers and Neo-Confucian scholars. I found myself marveling at several points in how well the author brings out neglected or overlooked features of Neo-Confucianism. This work also helped me to better understand Neville s writings on Confucianism. Philip J. Ivanhoe, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor"
