IX. Van Wyk et al., Creativity and Its Discontents Alan Van Wyk and Michel Weber (eds.), Creativity and Its Discontents. The Response to Whitehead’s Process and Reality, Frankfurt / Lancaster, ontos verlag, Process Thought VIII, 2008. (240 p. ; ISBN 978-3-86838-018-7 ; 89 €) “I do not expect a good reception from professional philosophers” wrote Whitehead in 1929, straight after the publication of Process and Reality. Indeed, it took nearly thirty years before scholars seriously started to try to decipher the book taken as a whole. And there remains nowadays “professional” Whiteheadians who claim that this work can—or even should—be bracketed by anyone wishing to get a clear picture of Whitehead’s true speculative agenda. Creativity and Its Discontent aims to provide evidence for this state of affairs by gathering and contextualizing all the major reviews (translated where need be) of Process and Reality : its original 1929 edition, its various translations (some of them still ongoing) and its 1978 corrected edition. It is designed as the ideal tool to accompany the forthcoming Handbook of Whiteheadian Process Thought. Table of Contents Introduction : Michel Weber (Chromatiques) 1.
