IV. Xie et al, Whitehead and China Wenyu Xie, Zhihe Wang, George Derfer (eds.), Whitehead and China. Relevance and Relationships, Frankfurt / Lancaster, ontos verlag, Process Thought IV, 2005. (220 p. ; ISBN 3-937202-86-2 ; 87 €) Whitehead acknowledged that “the philosophy of organism seems to approximate more to some strains of [...] Chinese thought.” The 2002 international Beijing Conference provided an appropriate forum for interested and engaged scholars to address each other directly, in an atmosphere of mutual regard and respect. The ongoing scholarly work on process thinking in China is impressive. It is the editors’ conviction that the publication of this book in English will promote international discussion of the themes and issues herein set forth. This should contribute significantly to the broader discussion between West and East, so important in this age of cultural globalization. Table of contents Preface by David Ray Griffin Part I.
