Orpheus' Glance Selected papers on process psychology

The Fontarèches meetings, 2002–2017

Editorial coordination by Paul Stenner, Michel Weber

The Whitehead Psychology Nexus is an international open forum dedicated to the cross-examination of Alfred North Whitehead's "organic" or “process” philosophy and the various facets of the contemporary psychological fi eld of research and debate. Read More

It seeks to mutually inform psychology and Whitehead scholarship by encouraging psychologists
to research in a Whiteheadian atmosphere and Whitehead scholars to engage with psychology.
Bold speculations balanced by "complete humility before logic, and before fact"
(Process and Reality, 1929, corr. ed., p. 17) are especially valued.

The WPN Workshops were launched in 2002 in Fontarèches (France). The provocative
papers gathered here are of two kinds: on the one hand, philosophical discussions of the
present state of affairs in psychology lato sensu; and, on the other hand, critical studies of
the relevance of the imaginative generalizations of Whitehead for psychology and of the
impact of contemporary psychology on Whitehead's system of thought.

Dr Paul Stenner is Professor of Social Psychology at the School of Psychology, The Open
University (Milton Keynes, UK).

Dr Michel Weber is Adjunct Professor at the Department of Educational Foundations, The
University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon, Ca).
