Upcoming Conference: Whiteheadian Laboratory
(Dec 1-3, 2016)

This year's conference asks: How does the work of A.N. Whitehead help us to not just think differently, but also act, live, communicate, and learn differently? A more specific way of putting this question is to ask: How Do We Make Ourselves a Proposition? During the course of this conference, we will try to develop new approaches not by presenting completed ideas or arguments, but by activating propositions.

New Publication: Thinking with Whitehead and the American Pragmatists: (April 16, 2015)
bk-cover Thinking with Whitehead and the American Pragmatists: Experience and Reality, Brian G. Henning, William T. Myers, and Joseph D. John, Eds., (Lexington Books, 2015) explores the deep lines of convergence between the philosophies of Alfred North Whitehead, C. S. Peirce, William James, John Dewey, and other classical American philosophers.

New Publication: The Divine Manifold (July 30, 2014)
cover The Divine Manifold, Roland Faber, (Lexington Books, 2014) is a postmodern enquiry in intersecting themes of the concept and reality of multiplicity in a chaosmos that does not refuse a dimension of theopoetics, but rather defines it in terms of divine polyphilia, the love of multiplicity. This book engages questions of religion and philosophy through the aporetic dynamics of love and power, locating its discussions in the midst of, and in between the spheres of a genuine philosophy of multiplicity.

New Publication: The Allure of Things (June 13, 2014)
cover The Allure of Things: Process and Object in Contemporary Philosophy, Roland Faber and Andrew Goffey, eds., (Lanham, MD: Bloomsbury Academic, 2014) contests the view that metaphysics is something to be overcome. By focusing on process and object oriented ontology (OOO) and rejecting the privileging of human existence over the existence of non-human objects, this collection explores philosophy's concern with things themselves.
