This volume developed out of the felt need of the authors for an introduction to Whitehead's philosophy which would assist an advanced student ready to tackle 'Process and Reality'. Hartshorne presents the historical context in which Whitehead developed his position. Peden provides an explanation of Whitehead's terminology as it develops in his view of reality.

About the Author:

Charles Hartshorne was professor of philosophy at the University of Chicago (1928-1955) and was also a member of the University's Federated Theological Faculty (1943-1955). He then taught at Emory University and later at the University of Texas at Austin. W. Creighton is the Callaway professor emeritus of philosophy at Augusta State University and president emeritus of the Highlands Institute for American Religious and Philosophical Thought.

Review:

For the many who enjoyed and relied upon this classic collaboration between Charles Hartshorne, one of our most profound philosophers, and Creighton Peden, one of our most insightful narrators of liberal religion, the reappearance of this book (enhanced by a biography of Whitehead and a new bibliography of Hartshorne on Whitehead) will be greeted by cheers. For the newer generation, now participating in the current boom in fresh Whitehead interpretations and applications, it will function as unearthed treasure, available again for many uses. --Frederick Ferré, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, University of Georgia, USA

This expanded version of a long-regarded classic introduction to Whitehead s philosophy by his most reliable interpreters is most welcome. With the inclusion of a brief biography and a carefully chosen bibliography, it will prove most useful to students and general readers interested in knowing more of Whitehead s work, now influential in so many branches of learning, not least theology. --D. W. D. Shaw, OBE, Professor Emeritus of Divinity, University of St Andrews, Scotland
