About the Press

Why process?
Based on the work of Alfred North Whitehead, process philosophy uncovers a relational ontology at the heart of the universe that flows into all realms of human thought and endeavor. Because it describes the way things are, process philosophy finds expression in diverse fields, from the hard sciences to the most ephemeral arts. Process Century Press is dedicated to publishing books as wildly diverse as life itself, held together by this one idea: that ours is a relational, participatory universe—and therefore, what we do matters, to each other, to all forms of life, and to Earth itself.

Process Century Press is an academic press associated with the International Process Network dedicated to transdisciplinary applications of process thought, The press was launched in collaboration with the 10th International Whitehead Conference, Seizing an Alternative, held June 2015 in Claremont, CA. The press publishes books emerging from the multiple sections and tracks of the conference, as well as other books that view scholarly issues and world concerns from a process perspective.
