Griffin, David Ray. "On Ian Barbour's 'Issues in Science and Religion'." Zygon 23 (March 1988): 57-81.


Although Ian Barbour endorses process organicism in "Issues in Science and Religion", his rhetoric against vitalism and dualism makes his discussion of life, mind, and the part-whole relationship should like relational emergentism and hence like a denial of process philosophy's nondualistic interactionism.  Also his rhetoric against a God of the gaps seems to exclude the god-shaped hole in Alfred North Whitehead's philosophy.  A more consistent articulation of Whitehead's postmodern position would lead to greater adequacy and consistency on these issues, and perhaps also to a more radically postmodern view of science -- a view which Whitehead himself only sometimes suggested.  [Abstract from The Philosopher's Index]
