Leon of After Nature posted the following More on Whitehead: Process Catholicism that provokes a question from me. Is this sort of work endangering to personalist views? That is, personalism broadly holds that the category of the human is ontologically essential, and it is a common doctrine of Catholicism. The danger is that allowing "subjectivity" to be a general feature of the cosmos de-emphasizes human subjectivity to the point of depersonalizing it. I have a difficult time seeing how one can depersonalize subjectivity without diminishing the human person, especially in a Catholic framework. I can image that there are ways around my critique, but that leads to me ask why is it explained in this way? Rhetoric is the only answer I can imagine, which makes me wonder what is at play. Puzzlement.
