Concrescence (process philosophy)


Concrescence (process philosophy)

Concrescence is a term coined by Alfred North Whitehead to show the process of jointly forming an actual entity that was without form, but about to manifest itself into an entity Actual full (satisfaction) based on datums or for information on the universe.[1] The process of forming an actual entity is the case based on the existing datums. Concretion process can be regarded as subjectification process.[2]
