Process-Relational Philosophy provides a basic introduction to Alfred North Whitehead's Process and Reality, the vision that underlies much of contemporary process philosophy, theology, political theory, educational theory, and the religion-science dialogue. A companion volume to the author's acclaimed Process Theology: A Basic Introduction, it shows the way beyond both reductive materialism and the traps of Cartesian dualism to a world of continual process and becoming, where each person relates to every other and to all of nature.
