Buddhist Thought and Whitehead's Philosophy

Abstract
The idea behind the essay is that whitehead's philosophy provides a conceptuality whereby buddhist and christian thought and existence may enrich each other. This essay focuses upon buddhist thought, Primarily as interpreted by conze, Suggesting that whitehead might help it overcome what have evidently been felt as inherent problems, Including the failure to generate sustained programs to improve outer conditions. Four buddhist doctrines are compared with correlative whiteheadian notions. Of special importance is whitehead's doctrine of partial conformity of experience to inherent subjective forms of the data of perception, In contrast with the buddhist doctrine of the affective neutrality of these data, Implying that all affective responses are totally volitional
