Hartshorne's theory of the divine social relationship
MetadataShow full item record
This study represents an attempt to give an adequate account of the fundamental principles of Hartshorne's theory of God's relation to the individual. The specific problem centers on an analysis of the cognitive-causal and ethical-esthetic structure of the divine relationship. In the general development of the problem, Hartshorne remains within the frame of reference of panpsychism. Hence a preliminary examination is made of the basic principles of panpsychism, in which the basic notion that all organic relations may be plausibly--and empirically--explained in terms of the category of feeling is explicitly treated.
