The passage of nature by Dorothy M Emmet( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The concept of Process is often used, but seldom discussed. In this book, Dorothy Emmet treats the idea as a key concept in describing what goes on in the world. She shows how a process differs from a succession of events, facts, or just things changing, and claims that causation should be seen in terms of processes. Delineating three kinds of process, or "goings on"--Artificial, as in the building of a house; natural, as in physiological changes; and social, as in human political activities--she describes their general characteristics as well as the special characteristics of organic and social processes. Finally, she explores the possible significance of the notion of process for morals and religion and proposes what might be called "providential processes."" "As her title suggests, the author acknowledges the influence of an early interest in Alfred North Whitehead's philosophy of process, and she critically discusses some of his views. But this is not an exegesis of Whitehead; it is an original metaphysical theory in which creativity in the passage of nature comes through the activities of things and persons sustaining processes."--Jacket

The role of the unrealisable : a study in regulative ideals by Dorothy M Emmet( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are certain ideals that can never be realised yet play an important role in our thinking, our morality, and our politics: they include the final comprehensive Truth, the General Will, the absolute Good, and certain religious ideals. Our attempts to get closer to them profoundly influence what we do, and our concern for them informs our criticism of what we reject. In politics, in particular, too many idealists are under the illusion that these ideals can be realised and if disillusioned about this they too easily turn to cynicism - which is equally mistaken. This book looks at the role of such ideals in our intellectual and moral lives and in our politics by taking Kant's concept of the Regulative Ideal, and in so doing develops the concept itself further. Other thinkers whose ideas are considered in relation to this range from Plato to Iris Murdoch
