Description

This book fills a significant gap in current process scholarship by providing a detailed exposition of Whitehead's and Hartshorne's social and political writings, reconstructing their ideological commitments in depth, and placing them in their historical context. It focuses on four areas of inquiry: the individual and society; the ideals of freedom, equality, and democracy; the use of coercive force within and between societies; and the theory of social progress. As each feature of their political though is examined, Morris shows how Whitehead's and Hartshorne's political commitments are reflected in their metaphysical principles.

Review quote

"It is a novel analytical approach to process though, with important consequences for philosophical and theological discussions. The conclusion certainly will be controversial, especially in theological discussion." -- Delwin Brown, Iliff School of Theology
