The primary purpose of this dissertation is to compare some of the basic axiological concepts in the thought of E.S. Brightman and A.N. Whitehead. A subordinate purpose lies in a comparative evaluation and a brief estimate of the relevancy of their axiological insights for contemporary society. The comparative study is developed in five special areas: (1) Brightman's and Whitehead's concern for value problems as indicated by the proportionate amount of writing devoted to value problems in each thinker and as called for by the internal aspects of their thought, (2) the nature and criteria of value according to each, (3) the function of God in their value structures, (4) their views as to the meaning and sources of disvalues, and (5) their conceptions of the religious expression of values.
