A Key to Whitehead's Process and Reality summary ó 8 Whitehead's magnum opus is as important as it is difficult It is the only work in which his metaphysical ideas are stated systematically and completely and his metaphysics ar. Alfred North Whitehead in his magnum opus Process and Reality set forth a philosophical framework that has inspired the subseuent generation of theologians to look towards a new system of metaphysics ethics epistemology and theological reality One of the problems with Process and Reality however is that it is not a very accessible text to most people even to most theologians Donald Sherburne has done great service to legions of pastors students and interested lay persons by simplifying and reorganising the text of Process and Reality into a logical and easier to read textSherburne s introduction speaks of the lack of information available on Whitehead since his death in 1947 his influence has been confined to philosophy and theology and then only at graduate student and higher levels This has not changed for the most part in the decades since the first publication of Sherburne s text but it is beginning to make itself felt in various levels through grassroots evangelism of process thought principlesThe text itself is organised to allow primary emphasis on Whitehead s own writing from Process and Reality followed closely in the chapters by paragraphs of explanation and commentary by Sherburne these are presented in an italicised typeface making the distinction between Whitehead s words and the commentary very clearThe rearrangement of topics follows closely what a typical student of philosophy might expect to find in any other philosophy text Like logic or geometry Whitehead was a prot g of Bertrand Russell of Principia Mathematica fame it begins with basic principles and concepts For Whitehead this is the actual entity and the process itself From this the text explores how things are what they are and how we can come to know themHow things are constituted involved their formative elements for Whitehead these consist of God creativity and the pure potentiality inherent in the universe With these in mind the process of concrescence is presentedSherburne then presents ideas of the macrocosmic and nexus and the reuirements and limitations on perception This leads to a discussion of Whitehead versus other philosophers many of whom will be far familiar to the readers Descartes Hume Locke Kant and the methods of science through a lens of Newton and Plato first then further developed are exploredThe seventh chapter on God and the World is perhaps the most interesting and useful to theologians God s primordial and conseuent natures are explored Whitehead uses the process ideas set forth earlier to look at the concept of immortality in particular the love of God for the world and the process by which all of reality can be redeemed and held complete in the mind of GodSherburne states that the Appendix In Defense of Speculative Philosophy can be read first or last in the text Sherburne actually recommends both so that Whitehead s Defense can serve both as a setting and a conclusion to this text Philosophy particularly metaphysics and the speculative sorts of philosophy has been under critical attack over the past few generations Whitehead s arguments for the value of philosophy particularly when it relates to other intellectual disciplines as opposed to merely trying to explain things away are worth considering by the philosopher scientist historian theologian political scientist and followers of many other disciplinesThere is a useful glossary of terms that I return to time and again These are good definitions succinctly stated deriving from the text of Process and Reality Sherburne a professor of philosophy at Vanderbilt is also one of the editors who produced the corrected version of Whitehead s primary text Process and Reality This book can serve as an excellent preliminary study prior to going on to Process and Reality itself but I would advise those seriously interested in Whitehead and process thought to continue on toward that text
