The Dissolution of Divine Action and Agency in Process Theology

The Dissolution of Divine Action and Agency in Process Theology

(p.129) 8 The Dissolution of Divine Action and Agency in Process Theology
Divine Agency and Divine Action, Volume I

William J. Abraham

Oxford University Press

Recent philosophical work on divine action has been undertaken carefully and in a sustained manner by Process theologians. Thus the central aim of this chapter is to articulate and evaluate the salient options on offer with respect to divine action and agency in the Process tradition. Though Chapter 3 dealt with the work of Schubert Ogden, a key player in the Process tradition, Ogden did not draw upon the foundations of the Process tradition in his account of divine action. The author engages the work of David R. Griffin, who has provided one of the more thorough accounts of divine action in the Process tradition. He examines how Griffin handles the issue of divine action, and argues that the Process tradition faces formidable difficulties conceptually and theologically in that matter.

Keywords:   David R. Griffin, Process theology, divine action, Alfred North Whitehead, metaphysics, Thomas Oord
