Whitehead's Radically Different Postmodern Philosophy
Whitehead's Radically Different Postmodern Philosophy (March 2007)
An Argument for Its Contemporary Relevance
David Ray Griffin - Author

Examines the postmodern implications of Whitehead’s metaphysical system.

Postmodern philosophy is often dismissed as unintelligible, self-contradictory, and as a passing fad with no contribution to make to the problems faced by philosophers in our time. While this characterization may be true of the type of philosophy labeled postmodern in the 1980s and 1990s, David Ray Griffin argues that Alfred North Whit...(Read More)

Overcoming the Conflicts
David Ray Griffin - Author

2000 Scientific and Medical Network Book Prize

Policy, Process, and Presidential Vision
David Ray Griffin - Editor
Richard A. Falk - Editor

Evil Revisited
Evil Revisited (July 1991)
Responses and Reconsiderations
David Ray Griffin - Author

"The book stands as a major contribution to process theology, and beyond that, to the general problem of theodicy in the 20th century. It takes its place beside the work of Plantinga as a major option for rational theology.

"The overall contribution of process theology has been to make clear the necessity of thinking through the categorical assumptions about our concepts of God, world, and evil. Griffin's work is the most...(Read More)

Postmodern Spirituality, Political Economy, and Art
David Ray Griffin - Editor

This book shows the interconnections between postmodernism, religion, politics, economics, and art. It shows that the awareness of interconnectedness is at the center of the postmodern sensibility.

While the term "postmodern" has been widely used for deconstructive, cynical, even nihilistic attitude, espe...(Read More)
Primordial Truth and Postmodern Theology
Primordial Truth and Postmodern Theology (October 1989)
David Ray Griffin - Author
Huston Smith - Author

In this book, Huston Smith and David Ray Griffin propose religious philosophies to succeed the waning worldview of modernity. Huston Smith proposes the perennial philosophy or primordial tradition, and David Ray Griffin offers postmodern process theology. The ultimate issue debated is whether we should return to a traditional religious philosophy or seek a new never-before-articulated worldview.

The debate covers the following issues: the re...(Read More)
