David T. Bradford A Process Perspective on Mystical States of Awareness
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
Four states of awareness represent the superlative mystical experiences promoted in the major religious traditions. Their names convey their qualities: Plenitude, Absence, Call, and Response. Plenitude and Absence are non-theistic experiences. Call and Response are devotional and penitential in nature; the human calls, God responds. The states are irreducible and tend to occur in pairs. Plenitude is paired with Absence, and Call is paired with Response. Paired states are complementary and reciprocally related, and occur in temporal contiguity. The states are inflection points in a single process of change. Mystical process is a set of relational tensions that brings successive states into awareness. The religious truths revealed to mystics are penultimate relative to the process that makes them possible.

Ronny Desmet Whitehead and Gestalt Psychology
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
The aim of this paper is to explain the affinities of Alfred North Whitehead’s philosophy with Gestalt psychology by identifying a number of psychologists playing a relevant role in both the genesis of Whitehead’s thought and the history of Gestalt psychology. The paper especially focuses on the impact that George Frederick Stout’s analytic psychology had on Whitehead.

Eleonora Mingarelli Re-thinking the self. Process philosophy in Murray and Morgan’s Thematic Apperception Test
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
In this paper, I will provide both a historical and a theoretical perspective through which I will analyse the conceptual affinities between the TAT and process philosophy, arguing that the TAT is in fact built on process principles. I will first elucidate the type of personality test the TAT is, and then will briefly sketch the historical relation between Murray, Morgan and Whitehead. Finally, I will explicate the relevant points of contact between the TAT and the process framework, paying attention to specific aspects of the test that suggest the influence of Whitehead’s process philosophy on its genesis.

Ronny Desmet A Whiteheadian Reading of Victor Frankl
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
The aim of this paper is to present the basic ideas of Victor Frankl’s meaning-therapy in such a way that the affinity with Alfred North Whitehead’s process philosophy is highlighted. Our account of Frankl's ideas furthermore suggests that they cannot only be derived from Max Scheler's phenomenology, but also from Whitehead's process philosophy.

Karen Yan The Dynamic Nature of the Subjective Character of Consciousness
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
Many philosophers agree that consciousness necessarily has a subjective character, which Thomas Nagel (1974) characterizes as “something it is like for the organism” (p. 436), and which, in turn, “is essentially connected with a single point of view” (p. 437). Among these philosophers, some attempt to ground this subjective character on some kind of self, though they use different notions of self to explain what that point of view amounts to. In this paper, I analyze these different notions, categorize them into three types, and demonstrate a shared presupposition among them. I argue that, because of this presupposition, these philosophers cannot explain the dynamic nature of the subjective character of consciousness. I then propose an alternative to ground th􀀁 subjective character, and show how this alternative provides a better framework for explaining the dynamic nature of consciousness.

Tina Röck Humans and their world. The role of ‘sense certainty’ in Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit and in Whitehead’s philosophy
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
For a long time philosophy has understood a human’s being in the world as governed by thought, since the relation of a mind to an independent objective world is a relation of thought. And the relation of thought was often considered to be the only way to grasp true reality. Thinkers that endorse this position consider even perception to be a relation of a mind to a mind-independent world, therefore for these thinkers perception is nothing but a rather crude mode of the relation of thought. The consequence of this position is an understanding of our being in the world that is based on intellectualism, rationalism and psychologism. Both Hegel and Whitehead disagree with this position to varying degrees, since they both concede that there is a fundamental disclosure of reality through our being in the world, through a relation of being. But they disagree on whether this level of disclosure has any relevance. In this paper I want to investigate the reasons why Hegel is forced to dismiss straight away the fundamental relation of being, while Whitehead founded his philosophy on this very relation.

Denys Zhadiaiev The Notion of Balance. Part One: Balance out of Chaosmos
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
In this paper we are trying to assess two perennial philosophical questions with the help of conceptual tools borrowed from Whitehead and Prigogine: What constitutes the feeling of happiness? and How could happiness be related to the notion of balance?
