Contemporary Whitehead Studies


The series has been discontinued.

Contemporary Whitehead Studies solicits manuscripts from scholars with contemporary and innovative approaches to Whitehead studies, that is, Whitehead’s philosophy and Whitehead's text (as a whole), by giving special focus to projects that:
• explore the connections between Whitehead and contemporary Continental philosophy, especially sources, like Heidegger, or contemporary streams like poststructuralism,
• reconnect Whitehead to pragmatism, analytical philosophy and philosophy of language, as a matter of source and recourse for an understanding of the tradition out of which Whitehead formulated his philosophic concepts or as a matter of engagement in areas that has excluded Whitehead,
• explore creative East/West dialogues facilitated by Whitehead’s work,
• explore the interconnections of the mathematician with the philosopher and the contemporary importance of these part of Whitehead's work for the dialogue between sciences and humanities,
• reconnect Whitehead to the wider field of philosophy, the humanities, the sciences and academic research with Whitehead's pluralistic impulses in the context of a pluralistic world,
• address Whitehead’s philosophy (and, per example, of philosophy per se) in the midst of contemporary problems facing humanity, such as climate change, war & peace, race, and the future development of civilization.
Contemporary Whitehead Studies is a special series in the Value Inquiry Book Series.
Contemporary Whitehead Studies is affiliated with the Whitehead Research Project.
