    Whitehead's actual entities. For Whitehead's ontology of processes as defining the world, the actual entities exist as the only fundamental elements of reality. The actual entities are of two kinds, temporal and atemporal. With one exception, all actual entities for Whitehead are temporal and are occasions of experience (which are not to be confused with consciousness). Whitehead coined a new term to characterize the relations that actual entities have with the world, calling these relations “prehensions.” Each actual entity has a physical pole, which physically “prehends” all physical aspects of the universe. “Each actual entity is conceived of as .

    For Whitehead, the life of each actual entity is a self-chosen path which "functions in respect to its own determination" (PR, 25). Unconscious teleology is intimately linked with the 'ontological principle,' which Whitehead equates with efficient and final causality (PR, 24, 47). In fact, efficient causal forces are in the service of final.   Table of Contents.

Full text of "Alfred North Whitehead - Process & Reality".   Roughly, a concresence, for Whitehead, is the manner in which an actual occasion (substance) unifies its prehensions. So far so good. Problems emerge when Whitehead argues that the “ analysis of an actual entity into its most concrete elements discloses it to be a concresence of prehensions” (23).

WHITEHEAD S THEORY OF ACTUAL ENTITIES Whiteheads theory of actual entities book discussion of the method of speculative philosophy stresses the importance of beginning with a relatively restricted group of data, for example the field of physics, or psychology, or aesthetics.

This study argues that Whitehead's theory of eternal object-actual entity has affinities with Yulgok's theory of principle-material force. Their two theories, both based on reciprocal dialectical interrelationships, view the world as a cosmos characterized by the process of by: 2.

An actual entity is also called an “actual occasion.”. It is essentially a genetic process, having two sides, (I) the process of “becoming,” and (2) the outcome of the process named the “satisfaction.”. The satisfaction is the fully determined achievement abstracted from the by: 2.

An Introduction to Whitehead’s New View of Learning and Its Relation to Traditional Learning Theories. B and C describes a primitive actual entity (Causal Efficacy). ingly close to. Among Whitehead’s categories of explanation, there is one that explains nexus: (xiv) That a nexus is a set of actual entities in the unity of the relatedness constituted by their prehensions of each other, or -- what is the same thing conversely expressed -- constituted by their objectifications in.

Whitehead's Radically Different Postmodern Philosophy by David Ray Griffin is an exciting and engaging work. It is written with great clarity, even elegance, and with a continually impressive richness and depth, which cannot be conveyed in a review.

No student of philosophy would fail to benefit greatly from reading this by: 4. experience as the having of an object. An experience for Whitehead is a unitary event or process termed an "actual entity" or "occasion". Every concrete thing which is given to or prehended by an entity is a prior event or actual entity, or a group of such entities.

"The final facts are, all alike, actual entities; and these actual entities are drops of experience, complex and interdependent [PR, 28]." "Process is the becoming of experience [PR, ]." Because of this close relationship, Chapter III, particularly, of this book, could be considered a discussion of life.

Whitehead’s Theory of Extension in Process and Reality Claus Michael Ringel see for example the book of Ross and his discussion of the notion of perspective) Note that a nexus is a set of actual entities which form a unit, for example via.

Whitehead’s Theory of Extensions 3. Process and Reality is a book by Alfred North Whitehead, in which the author propounds a philosophy of organism, also called process philosophy.

The book, published inis a revision of the Gifford Lectures he gave in – We diverge from Descartes by holding that what he has described as primary attributes of physical bodies, are really the forms of internal relationships between actual.

“Actual entities—also termed ‘actual occasions’—are the final real things of which the world is made up. There is no going behind actual entities to find anything more real.

They differ among themselves: God is an actual entity, and so is the most trivial puff of existence in Author: Robert C. Whittemore. Beyond the Bifurcation of Nature 3 In Part I: Metaphysics and Morality, Daniel Dombrowski and Rebekah Sinclair examine the role of hierarchy from very different perspectives.

Dombrowski provides a reverse approach to environmental ethics that takes the moral patiency status of nonhuman animals and organisms as its starting point. Whitehead’s Radically Empirical Theory of General Relativity.

on Novem of the biggest surprises for me upon reading Auxier and Herstein’s book The Quantum of Explanation was learning that Whitehead’s theory of extension among which the most important are eternal objects and actual occasions; and nine categories of obligation).

The author argues that the doctrine of relativity implies the repeatability of all entities, including actual entities. Whitehead’s philosophy of organism is built on the tenet that even particulars are repeatable.

Whitehead, in turn, specified that all actual entities are subject/superjects; thus all entities are both experiencing and experienced, observer and object observed. In three concluding chapters of his book, Weber ranges farther afield in his espousal of radical empiricism.

actual entities and eternal objects are the fundamental entities; all other entities express how these two types are in community with one another. to “function” means to contribute to determining actual entities; self-identity of one entity cannot be abstracted from the community of diverse functionings of all entities.Anthony J.

Steinbock / Whitehead's 'Theory" of Propositions 21 n A proposition is the possibility of an actual world including a set of actual entities in a type of relatedness involving the hypothetical realization of a definite set of eternal objects.

Properly speaking, however, propositions do not contain "actual entities" or "eternal.
