Track 1: Whitehead and Analytic Philosophy

The dominance of analytical philosophy in the English-language world has led to Whitehead’s virtual exclusion from most departments of philosophy. However, there are a growing number of analytical philosophers who recognize the value of dialogue with Whiteheadians. This track will take up this dialogue and seek to enlarge and advance it.
