Overview

Deep Empiricism: Kant, Whitehead and the Necessity of Philosophical Theism offers a critical and comparative engagement of two great philosophers who are rarely treated together: Immanuel Kant and Alfred North Whitehead. Each believes that careful attention to the nature and content of human experience reveals truths that transcend any individual or finite human community. However, the understandings of reality and human experience greatly differ between the two men and makes for fruitful comparative analysis. Derek Malone-France provides insightful readings of Kant and Whitehead as he bridges the gap between those who study Kant's transcendental idealism and scholars of Whitehead's organic realism. Deep Empiricism is an engaging and comprehensive text that will appeal to students of philosophy and those interested in the ambiguities of truth and reality.
