Established in 2000 by members of the Australasian Association for Process Thought, Concrescence* is an online, peer-reviewed journal primarily dedicated to the study and application of the work of Alfred North Whitehead, Charles Hartshorne and other like-minded philosophers of process.

Academic papers and reviews are invited on all subjects addressing the problems and issues in process-relational metaphysics. The journal provides a forum for exploring a broad range of issues in this speculative or revisionist field, but not ignoring critical and analytical methods: from the philosophy of science to theology, from environmental ethics to politics, from historical analyses to contemporary issues.



The growing together of a many into the unity of a one.
It is "the real constitution of a particular existent." (ANW - PR 320)



Call for Papers ...


The editorial board for Concrescence is calling for papers for the next two issues of the journal.

One in dedication of the work of Charles Birch, and the other of a historical nature in celebration of Whitehead's sesquicentenary.
