Process Studies is a peer-reviewed and refereed academic journal from the Center for Process Studies at Claremont Graduate University. It is the leading international journal in its field, with issues published twice a year. Process Studies is dedicated to the study of the thought and wide-ranging implications of Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947) and his intellectual associates, most notably Charles E. Hartshorne (1897–2000), and others like William James (1842–1910), Charles Sanders Pierce (1839–1914), and Henri Bergson (1859–1941). The mandate of Process Studies is to explore Whiteheadian-Hartshornean process thought at an advanced level and as it appears in related philosophies and theologies (as noted above), applying the Whiteheadian-Hartshornean conceptuality to a wide range of other fields: aesthetics, biology, cosmology, economics, education theory, ethics, history of religions, literary criticism, mathematics, political thought, psychology, physics and other natural sciences, the social sciences, sociology, psychology, Christian theology, and Eastern religions.
