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.
