Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Those who are unfamiliar with Griffin’s recent books will be grateful for this clear, readable, and thorough introduction to Whitehead’s philosophy as constructive (rather than deconstructive) and postmodern. However, those who are well versed in Griffin’s previous books will also benefit from his expanded use of the theory of hard-core common sense, his defense of theological ethics, and his detailed examination of Whitehead’s reformed subjectivist principle. In short, this is an excellent book that could be read with profit by philosophers and theologians generally.” — Daniel A. Dombrowski, author of Rawls and Religion: The Case for Political Liberalism

“No one working in the area of process thought will want to miss this major new book by David Ray Griffin.” — Donald W. Sherburne, coeditor of Whitehead’s Philosophy: Points of Connection
