But how did she live out her own story?   Abigail Rosenthal is Professor Emerita of Philosophy, Brooklyn College of The City University of New York. She is the author of A Good Look at Evil, a Pulitzer Prize nominee now available in a revised, expanded…

Can Exceptional Experience Help Save the World?

March 21 - March 24

This conference will explore applying the insights from process philosophy and transpersonal psychology to the issues we are facing today.

Ecological Civilization and Holistic Human Development

April 19 - April 20
Claremont, CA

13th International Forum on Ecological Civilization 2nd International Youth Forum on Ecological Civilization As a positive vision of human flourishing, ecological civilization is about more than what we can do, it involves who we can become. It’s not merely about having more or doing more, but about being more. Being an “eco-person” speaks to the deeper motivations behind the kinds of actions we need to take in response to our complex social and environmental crisis. The development of eco-persons is connected with the qualitative measure…

Process as Creativity — Process as Concern

August 27 - August 30
University of Brasília Brasília, Brazil Brazil + Google Map

  12th International Whitehead Conference Process philosophy has championed the idea that the universe is in the making. There is no ultimate controlling body or ruling set of laws that can make justice to what is concrete. As Whitehead put it in Modes of Thought, concrete reality is not to be reduced to a barren tautological absolute where life and motion are nothing but dreams. As a consequence, creativity is placed by Whitehead as the ultimate behind all forms, inexplicable by forms,…

What is Consciousness?

December 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PST

We make a systematic error in trying to understand such complex physiologic properties as consciousness synchronically in ‘real time’. Instead we must use ways to delve into consciousness diachronically, transcending space-time.…
