    A Functionalist Reinterpretation of Whitehead’s Metaphysics.George Allan - 2008 - Review of Metaphysics 62 (2):327-354.
    Whitehead’s process metaphysics, as developed in Process and Reality, is harmed by the incoherence of his notion of eternal objects as timeless and essentially unrelated entities, which therefore need a primordial agent as their ontological ground and the source of their relatedness and relevance. Such nontemporal entities undermine what is supposed to be a thoroughly temporalist metaphysics. Eternal objects can be understood solely as functions of Creativity, however, as features of a purely temporal process. A notion of God is not (...)

    In this thorough compendium, nineteen accomplished scholars explore, in some manner the values they find inherent in the world, their nature, and revelence through the thought of Frederick FerrZ. These essays, informed by the insights of FerrZ and coming from manifold perspectives—ethics, philosophy, theology, and environmental studies, advance an ambitious challenge to current intellectual and scholarly fashions.

    In order to begin constructing a postmodern metaphysics, Ferré argues, it is first necessary to recall how the modern metaphysical worldview emerged and why it needs to be replaced. Since for Ferré the problem with modern thought is its denial that values have objective reality, his survey of the tradition from Thales to the present emphasizes the "value commitments," especially the "standards of cognitive success," embraced explicitly or implicitly by each philosopher. For example, completeness and consistency are thought by some (...)

    Comments on Ferré’s “The Practicality of Metaphysics”.George Allan - 2005 - Review of Metaphysics 58 (3):529 - 532.
    Ferré proposes three criteria for judging whether or not a metaphysical theory is “well made.” Two of the criteria are “adequacy” and “coherence.” For a metaphysical theory to be well made, it must be inclusive, leaving nothing out of its purview. And it must be integrated, bringing together all it includes into a unified whole. Adequacy and coherence apply to metaphysical theories the criteria for any non-trivial logical system: that it be both complete and consistent.

    Creating the Future.George Allan - 2009 - Process Studies 38 (2):207-227.
    The aim of this essay is to explore similarities between Whitehead’s stages of education and two of the “ultimate notions” he discusses in Modes of Thought. I hope this exploration will shed light on what Whitehead means when he opens the Epilogue of that book by saying: “The task of a university is the creation of the future, so far as rational thought, and civilized modes of appreciation, can affect the issue” (171).

  22. Emphatics. [REVIEW]George Allan - 2001 - Review of Metaphysics 54 (4):952-952.
    Ever the restless thinker, Weiss has once more revised his metaphysical system, introducing the Dunamic-Rational as one of the five ultimate conditions to which Being gives rise and identifying emphatics as the way by which particular beings and such other pivotal realities interrelate. These systemic adjustments give needed prominence to the dynamic features of reality.

    Forms of Hatred: The Troubled Imagination in Modern Philosophy and Literature.George Allan - 2004 - Review of Metaphysics 58 (1):175-176.
    Human societies, according to Donskis, are organized by “value-and-idea systems” that are works of creative imagination validated by their adequacy to the reality with respect to which they orient us. These patterns of culture provide the conditions for our personal and collective identities. The modern Western cultural pattern celebrates analytic reason and individuality, rejecting the holistic/hierarchic values of both its Christian and pagan predecessor cultures. The absence of these cohesive traditional values, however, troubles our imagination. It exposes our vulnerability and (...)

    Forms, Transforms, and the Creative Process.George Allan - 1999 - The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 1999:231-238.
    A standard account of creativity is that it is a process in which the form of a thing or event is altered—restructured or reinterpreted—in a way that changes fundamentally that thing’s or event’s meaning, its nature or function, its intrinsic or instrumental value. What is created in this manner, however, is only a variation of the initial form. Such processes are creative in a weak sense; the strong sense requires that the old form be replaced by a quite different one, (...)

    Historians, Soothsayers, and the Philosophy of History.George J. Allan - 1970 - Philosophical Forum 2 (1):50.
    HISTORIANS DESCRIBE AND EXPLAIN THE PAST. IT IS ARGUED THAT THIS ACTIVITY CAN BE EXTENDED TO ENCOMPASS FUTURE-REFERRING STATEMENTS WITHOUT BECOMING SOOTHSAYING. DESCRIPTIVE AND EXPLANATORY TECHNIQUES ARE EXAMINED, AND THE TEST OF THEIR ADEQUACY SEEN TO INVOLVE SPECULATIVE PREDICTION AND PROJECTION. PHILOSOPHERS OF HISTORY ALSO USE SUCH TECHNIQUES, IMAGINATIVELY COMPLETING INCOMPLETE DESCRIPTIVE PATTERNS BY REFERENCE TO THE FUTURE, IN ORDER TO SUGGEST AND EVALUATE EXPLANATIONS OF PAST EVENTS.

    In Defense of Secularizing Whitehead.George Allan - 2010 - Process Studies 39 (2):319-333.
    This essay responds to Lewis Ford’s “Allan’s Atheism,” in which he assesses a recent essay of mine that finds God an unnecessary and indeed coherence-destroying addition to Process and Reality. I clarify my position by showing how Whitehead’s notions of physical purpose and aesthetic determination adequately account for the novelty required for an actual occasion’s concrescence and for increases in achieved value. I then criticize Ford’s claim that genuine novelties must have a divine origin and that in Adventures of Ideas (...)

    Neville, Normative Measure, and the Discursive Individual.George Allan - 1992 - Review of Metaphysics 45 (3):575 - 597.
    IN RECOVERY OF THE MEASURE: INTERPRETATION AND NATURE, Robert Cummings Neville develops a philosophy of nature and theory of interpretation as centerpieces for his projected three-volume Axiology of Thinking. This emerging ontology of value is impressive for both its originality and complexity. Neville's claims about meaning, truth, objectivity, and knowledge are deployed in explicit opposition to the relativism, historicism, and subjectivism currently so popular among philosophers. His critique is formidable because neither polemical nor defensive; it is rather the expression of (...)

    On Foundationalism: A Strategy for Metaphysical Realism.George Allan - 2005 - Review of Metaphysics 59 (1):196-198.
    Metaphysical realism, as Rockmore defines it, is the claim that "under the proper conditions it is possible to know independent objects and the world as it is". Its canonical version is Platonic realism, which includes the ontological claim that this objective reality is a "permanent ahistorical matrix or framework". Foundationalism is an epistemological strategy for validating the realist claim by identifying something as absolutely true, true "beyond skepticism, hence beyond doubt of any kind", then deducing from it objective "knowledge of (...)

They abate, explode, crumble, die, erode, fade; they are deformed, eviscerated, torn apart, vanquished, made to (...)
