CPS Student Seminar: Bradford McCall

April 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT
Haddon, Claremont School of Theology, 1325 North College Avenue
Claremont, CA 91711 United States

"Necessary, Kenotically-donated, & Self-giving Love"   Bradford McCall argues for a notion of love that is necessarily kenotically-donated, self-giving, creative, and uncontrolling.

Process as Creativity — Process as Concern

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

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.
