After Whitehead: Rescher on Process Metaphysics
Ontos, 2004 - Science - 339 pages
When Rescher's Process Metaphysics (1996) was published, it was widely acclaimed as a major step towards the academic recognition of a 'mode of thought' that has otherwise been confined within sharp scholarly boundaries. Of course it is not an easy book: despite its stylistic clarity, it remains the complex outcome of a life's work in most areas of philosophy. The goal of the present volume is to systematically unfold the vices and virtues of Process Metaphysics, and thereby to specify the contemporary state of affairs in process thought. To do so, the editor has gathered one focused contribution per chapter, each paper addressing specifically and explicitly its assigned chapter and seeking to promote a dialogue with Rescher. In addition, the volume features Rescher's replies to the papers.
