Book Summary

Henry Nelson Wieman's (1884?1975) most distinctive philosophical contributions are his identification of creative interchange as the ultimate process in human experience through which people and their institutions are able to create, sustain, improve, and cor­rect their value perspectives and, equally important, his description of creative inter­change in psychological, sociological, histor­ical, religious, and institutional contexts as subject inquiry and the experimental test of consequences. This massive collection, thirty-three orig­inal essays with an appendix and index, rep­resents the first formal attempt to consider fully the interdisciplinary implications of creative interchange. Following an introduc­tion, the book is structured into six sections, beginning with historical studies on the de­velopment of Wieman's philosophy of creativity. With this information as a base the subsequent five sections treat: (1) his metaphysics and theory of knowledge; (2) his the­ory of value; (3) creative interchange in the context of rhetoric and literary criticism; (4) creative interchange as a guide for social phi­losophy; and (5) creative interchange as re­lated to current philosophic trends. The essayists include prominent philosophers, such as Charles Hartshorne, Lewis E. Hahn, and S. Morris Eames, as well as emerging scholars who have responded to Wieman's conception of creative interchange.
