  1. Process-Relational Philosophy: An Introduction to Alfred North Whitehead.C. Robert Mesle - 2008 - Templeton Press.
    Process thought is the foundation for studies in many areas of contemporary philosophy, theology, political theory, educational theory, and the religion-science dialogue. It is derived from Alfred North Whitehead's philosophy, known as process theology, which lays a groundwork for integrating evolutionary biology, physics, philosophy of mind, theology, environmental ethics, religious pluralism, education, economics, and more. In _Process-Relational Philosophy_, C. Robert Mesle breaks down Whitehead's complex writings, providing a simple but accurate introduction to the vision that underlies much of contemporary process (...)

    Suffering, Meaning, and Pragmatism.C. Robert Mesle - 2006 - The Proceedings of the Twenty-First World Congress of Philosophy 8:97-102.
    What do theodicies do? This paper argues that we can evaluate and respond to theodicies more effectively if we ask, as pragmatists, what problems we are trying to solve, whether we solve them effectively, and whether these are the problems we should be addressing. Some maintain that, beyond defending religious beliefs, theodicies also address deep emotional needs. I argue that we would do better to abandon theodicies of hidden meaning, acknowledge honestly that bad things happen, and seek comfort and meaning (...)

    Review of Loriliai Biernacki and Philip Clayton, Panentheism Across the World’s Traditions. [REVIEW]C. Robert Mesle - 2015 - Sophia 54 (1):111-113.
    Pan-en-theism is importantly distinguished from pantheism. Whereas pantheism reduces God to the world, panentheists affirm that God is both imminent and transcendent. Where ‘all’ refers to the cosmos, panentheism is the view that all is in God, and God is in all, but God nevertheless transcends the all of the world.Biernacki explains that the collaborative authors of this volume don’t feel compelled to fit any pre-conceived mold. Nor are they trying to imperially supplant all previous conceptions of reality or divinity (...)

    Review of Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson, God of Becoming and Relationship: The Dynamic Nature of Process Theology. [REVIEW]C. Robert Mesle - 2014 - Sophia 53 (1):161-163.
    ‘Process Theology enables us to establish a robust relationship to Jewish scriptures and practice in a context of personal integrity, with openness to contemporary knowledge and insight and with an emphasis on spiritual depth and social engagement’ (61). ‘ …a process approach makes the centrality of love clear…’ (62)Rabbi Artson is Dean of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies and VP of the American Jewish University in Los Angeles. It is important to know, I think, that his interest in process (...)
