Paul Weiss (1901-2002) was a professor and widely published philosopher. He was the first Jewish full professor at Yale, and also taught at Bryn Mawr College and the Catholic University of America. He founded the Review of Metaphysics and the Metaphysical Society of America.

Consists of the edited typescript of Paul Weiss's book, the sixth volume of his Philosophy in Process. Weiss (1901-2002) was a philosopher who taught briefly at Bryn Mawr College, as well as elsewhere.

The following is a bookseller's description of the published version of this typescript: "Dealing with some of the major, pivotal issues in philosophy, this sixth volume of Mr. Weiss's Philosophy in Process represents the final development and expression in journal form of many of his original views. In addition, the period covered in this volume was exceptionally fruitful for Mr. Weiss's own work. During this time he published the fourth volume of Philosophy in Process and his widely discussed and provocative Sport: A Philosophic Inquiry and began writing Beyond All Appearances and Cinematics."
