European Studies in Process Thought

ISSN No: 2058-2897
Series Editor(s):
Dr. Helmut Maaßen
Subject: Philosophy

Series Description

The European Studies in Process Thought is a book series devoted to the historical and systematic study of process philosophy in all its aspects. Although it is indebted to a philosophical tradition, in particular to the works of William James, Charles S. Peirce, Henri Bergson, Samuel Alexander and Alfred N. Whitehead, it is not dogmatically restricted to specific authors. It also aims at exploring various philosophical problems against the background of process thinking, i.e. the position that reality is in a continuous state of becoming and defies all attempts to provide definite and irrefutable answers or theories. In addition to philosophical monographs, the series publishes collections of peer-reviewed articles as well as the original results of conferences and symposia.

However, many important questions still await detailed answers. For example, what is the meaning of the concepts of “dynamics,”...
