Creativity and Its Discontents: The Response to Whitehead's Process and Reality
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


'I do not expect a good reception from professional philosophers' wrote Whitehead in 1929, immediately after the publication of "Process and Reality". Indeed, it took nearly thirty years before scholars seriously started to try to decipher the book taken as a whole. And there remains today 'professional' Whiteheadians who claim that this work can - or even should - be bracketed by anyone wishing to get a clear picture of Whitehead's true speculative agenda. "Creativity and Its Discontents" aims to provide evidence of the conditions for this state of affairs by gathering and contextualising all the major reviews (translated where need be) of "Process and Reality": its original 1929 edition, its various translations (some of them still ongoing) and its 1978 corrected edition. It is designed as the ideal tool to accompany the recently published "Handbook of Whiteheadian Process Thought".
