Abstract
— Nous interrogeons la fonction du concept d’organisme dans l’œuvre de Whitehead et l’élaboration de la cosmologie de Procès et réalité. Notre but est de déterminer à quels problèmes ce concept répond et de quelles hypothèses il découle. Whitehead justifie sa description des entités actuelles par le postulat cosmologique d’une homogénéité entre l’expérience humaine et les événements de la nature. Nous tentons, quant à nous, de montrer que le concept d’organisme dépend également, dès Le concept de nature, de l’hypothèse d’une vie intérieure et qu’il relève finalement de ce que Cavaillès appelait une philosophie de la conscience.We investigate the function of the concept of organism in Whitehead’s philosophy. We wish to find out which problems this concept answers and from which hypothesis it follows. Whitehead justifies his description of actual entities by the cosmological postulate : the homogeneity of human experience and events in nature. We try to show that the concept of organism also depends on the hypothesis, already in The Concept of Nature, of an interiority and, therefore, belongs to what Cavaillès called a philosophy of consciousness
