About the Author:

Thomas E. Hosinski is professor at the University of Portland in Oregon.

Review:

At last, however, we have in Hosinski's fine book an exceptional approachable introduction to process thought, and one especially apt for those who wish to examine its theological possibilities. (Theological Studies)

. . . a masterful job of introducing complex new Whiteheadian language in a gentle, systematic way. . . .The availability of this book now makes it possible to include Whitehead in a semester course for undergraduates. Hosinski's superb study has overcome a long-standing pedagogical problem. (Donald W. Sherburne)

. . . a splendid appraisal of Whitehead's difficult but vastly important metaphysics. Its very clarity and obvious relevance represent one of the best possible arguments . . . knowledgeable of both process philosophy and theology; accurate in its description of Whitehead's intricate and elegant system; appreciative of the boldness, novelty and incredible scope of his ideas; and judiciously critical. (Langdon Gilkey)

Hosinski presents the complexities of Whitehead's conceptuality with remarkable simplicity and clarity. (Cobb, John B., Jr.)

Thanks to Hosinski serious students no longer have an excuse that making sense of Whitehead's metaphysics is beyond them. (The Expository Times)

. . . an attractive alternative to Victor Lowe's Understanding Whitehead, Ivor Leclerc's Whitehead's Metaphysics, and Donald Sherburne's A Key to Whitehead's Process and Reality. . . . Recommended for advanced undergraduates and beyond. (Choice)

[a] sympathetic and spirited defence of Whitehead's complex metaphysics . . . one of the best introductory renderings of the status and significance of actual entities . . . (Transactions Of The C. S. Peirce Society)

This is one of the best introductions to Whitehead's philosophy in print. This book will not only inform new students but will also enlighten seasoned scholars of Whitehead's work. Going beyond simple exposition, Hosinski's expert use of examples and illustrations clarifies Whitehead's neologisms and obscurities. (Religious Studies Review)
