Process Theology, and the Process Philosophy upon which it is

based, is often thought to be totally inconsistent with classical philosophy.

While this may be true to some degree, there still remains some

commonality. For example, the Father of Process Philosophy is Alfred

North Whitehead.

In his book, “Process and Reality,” Whitehead discusses the notion

of the Immutable Platonic Forms. Whitehead refers to the Platonic forms as

“eternal objects.” This is important. Whitehead stands at the forefront of

philosophy of science and still asserts the existence of the Immutable

Platonic Forms. Thus, there is no inconsistency in arguing for process

philosophy on the one hand and an epistemology involving the World of the

Forms, on the other.
