  1. Whitehead’s Pansychism as the Subjectivity of Prehension.Leemon B. McHenry - 1995 - Process Studies 1 (24):1-14.
    In this essay, I argue that A. N. Whitehead's novel concept of prehension only makes sense as a form of panpsychistic idealism. After making the case for this view, I critical evaluate Lewis Ford's interpretation of prehension from his compositional analysis of Whitehead's metaphysical works.

  2. Descriptive and Revisionary Theories of Events.Leemon B. McHenry - 1996 - Process Studies 25:90-103.
    In this essay I examine the concept of an event within the context of P. F. Strawson's distinction between descriptive and revisionary metaphysics. As opposed to the linguistic treatment of events in the descriptive approach of Strawson and Donald Davidson, I make a case for the revisionary approach of A. N. Whitehead and W. V. Quine, according to which events are basic rather than dependent on substances.

  3. On the Origin of Great Ideas: Science in the Age of Big Pharma.Leemon B. McHenry - 2005 - Hastings Center Report 35 (6):17-19.
    This case study reports an instance of SmithKline Beecham's behind-the-scenes ghostwriting a letter to the editor in a medical journal article in the name of an academic physician. In order to respond to criticism that paroxetine caused severe withdrawal effects, SmithKline Beecham's marketing department hired a PR firm to ghostwrite three separate letters to spin a favorable impression of paroxetine vs fluoxetine and published one in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.

    The Ontology of the Past: Whitehead and Santayana.Leemon B. McHenry - 2000 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 14 (3):219-231.
    This essay examines the question of the ontological basis for historical propositions and contrasts the positions of A. N. Whitehead and George Santayana, i.e., presentism vs. eternalism. I argue that Whitehead's presentism is a more satisfactory solution to how propositions refer to the past.

    From an Ontological Point of View. [REVIEW]Leemon B. Mchenry - 2004 - Review of Metaphysics 57 (3):620-621.
    The first thing to note about the present work is that it is divided into twenty short chapters, all of which contain numbered sections averaging two to three pages in length. This organization adds to the concision and clarity of the book and works well with Heil’s attempt to present ideas in an unpretentious manner. The dust jacket tells us that the book is written in an accessible, nontechnical style that is intended for nonspecialists as well as seasoned metaphysicians. But (...)

    Bradley, James, and Whitehead on Relations.Leemon B. Mchenry - 1989 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 3 (3):149 - 169.
    In this essay, I provide an exposition of F. H. Bradley's arguments against relations and then critically evaluate his view using arguments advanced by William James and A. N. Whitehead. Against Bradley, I argue for the reality of relations as concrete aspects of the temporal process.

    Ghost-Managed Medicine: Big Pharma’s Invisible Hands by Sergio Sismondo. [REVIEW]Leemon B. McHenry - 2019 - Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 29 (2):12-16.
    Ghost-Managed Medicine exposes the conspiracy to conceal all of the players in the marketing of drugs, including ghostwriters, key opinion leaders, patient advocacy organizations, contract research organizations, publication planners, and even medical journal editors and publishers. The credibility of the claims conveyed by the industry depends on the invisibility of these players.

    Whitehead and Bradley: A Comparative Analysis.Michael Partridge & Leemon B. McHenry - 1992 - Philosophical Quarterly 43 (173):545.
    In his magnum opus, Process and Reality, Alfred North Whitehead claims a special affinity to Oxford philosopher Francis Herbert Bradley. McHenry clarifies exactly how much of Whitehead's metaphysics is influenced by and accords with the main principles of Bradley's "absolute idealism." He argues that many of Whitehead's doctrines cannot be understood without an adequate understanding of Bradley, in terms of both affinities and contrasts. He evaluates the arguments between them and explores several important connections with William James, Josiah Royce, George (...)

    Is Science Neurotic? By Nicholas Maxwell. [REVIEW]Leemon B. McHenry - 2006 - Review of Metaphysics 59 (3):657-659.
    The argument of this book is the culmination of the author’s work that has been under way since the 1970s, and it brings together a wealth of ideas from his earlier books, What’s Wrong with Science?, From Knowledge to Wisdom, The Comprehensibility of the Universe, and The Human World and the Physical Universe. There are fine tunings of points and discussion of cutting-edge developments in physics that provide an excellent update to his views. Maxwell also explains the basic principles of (...)

    Irrationality: An Essay on Akrasia, Self-Deception, and Self-Control.Leemon B. McHenry - 1988 - Review of Metaphysics 41 (3):628-631.
    The specific type of irrationality known as akrasia or weakness of the will has been a subject of vigorous debate ever since Plato in his Protagoras had Socrates defend the thesis that "no one willingly does wrong." Against Socrates and many contemporary thinkers on the subject, Mele attempts to vindicate akrasia as a genuine possibility. As he explores the theoretical labyrinth, his view emerges as rich in philosophic insight and experimental data from psychological research, the latter of which he uses (...)

    The Effectiveness of Causes. [REVIEW]Leemon B. McHenry - 1985 - Review of Metaphysics 39 (2):351-352.
    In this brief but formidable monograph Dorothy Emmet presents a splendid account of causation woven around numerous contemporary discussions. The largest portion of this book is devoted to an analysis of the epistemological problems of describing events in terms of cause and effect. Here Emmet defines her position in relation to the views of Davidson, Mellor, Anscombe, O'Neill, Prichard, Hornsby and others. Her main task however is to "pass beyond the epistemology to a metaphysics underpinning it", and this she achieves (...)

    The New Aspects of Time. Its Continuity and Novelties Selected Papers in the Philosophy of Science by Milič Čapek. [REVIEW]Leemon B. McHenry - 1992 - Review of Metaphysics 45 (3):604-605.
    In his vigorous defense of the reality of time, Capek champions a tradition of process philosophy that includes such figures as Bergson, James, and Whitehead, against both philosophers and physicists that subordinate time to some lower status in reality or regard it as a peculiar dimension of space. This is, in fact, the point of his last essay in this volume, "Time-Space Rather than Space-Time," where he argues, contrary to standard interpretations, that relativity physics does not necessitate a frozen "block (...)
