The Whitehead Research Project is excited to announce an opportunity to explore and discuss the contents of the Whitehead Research Library (WRL). Launched in February 2019, the WRL contains archival Whitehead materials seldom or never seen before, including almost the entirety of the papers donated to WRP by Whitehead’s grandson.
Starting in late January 2021, WRP will convene a reading group via Zoom to discuss a reading or readings from the WRL. Our hope is that the reading group will provide an informal setting through which Whitehead scholars can begin to think collaboratively about what these newly revealed documents tell us about Whitehead’s philosophy and life.
Discussions will be led by co-vectors Brianne Donaldson of UC Irvine, Brian G. Henning of Gonzaga University, and Joseph Petek of WRP.
You can register to take part in the reading group here. Registration is FREE.
The reading group will meet on Friday mornings from 9:00am–10:15am Pacific Time every three weeks starting on January 29, with readings announced at least one meeting prior.
Readings can be downloaded directly from the WRL. The readings for the first three meetings will be:
- January 29: First Harvard lecture.
- February 19: Religious Psychology of the Western Peoples.
- March 12: Freedom and Order.
We hope you’ll join us as we begin to explore these exciting new materials!
