Rethinking Whitehead's Symbolism : Thought, Language, Culture, Paperback / softback Book

Rethinking Whitehead's Symbolism : Thought, Language, Culture Paperback / softback

Edited by Roland Faber, Jeffrey A. Bell, Joseph Petek


This collection of 11 essays form a new examination of Whitehead's Barbour-Page lectures, which were published as the book Symbolism: Its Meaning and Effect in 1927.

Leading Whitehead scholars give you exciting insights into the contemporary implications of Whitehead's symbolism in an era of new scientific, cultural and technological developments.

As a result, Whitehead's philosophy is reinvigorated in the context of contemporary discussions and debates.

This volume also serves as a critical point of entry into Whitehead's more lengthy and complex work such as Process and Reality, and to his body of work as a whole.
