Whitehead's Metaphysics of Power : Reconstructing Modern Philosophy
At the beginning of Process and Reality (1929), Alfred North Whitehead condemns a list of beliefs, which he thinks are widely held by contemporary philosophers, as dangerously mistaken. Pierfrancesco Basile looks at these myths: where they came from and why they are rejected. In doing so, he makes it possible to grasp the main concepts of Whitehead's process metaphysics - especially the crucial notion that being and power are one and the same - and how it is rooted in the modern philosophical tradition.
