Philosophy in Process, Volume 10, continues the publication of the working journals, the intellectual diary of one of the greatest modern metaphysicians. It presents the unique opportunity to experience him at work, thinking critically about his past writings and breaking ground in the creation of new works.

"Weiss' entry for January 21, 1979, expresses his own understanding of this journal and its significance. 'I think this journal shows me primarily in the role of a philosopher, while the systematic works exhibit my philosophy. ' Neither can be dealt with in isolation from the other for they are interrelated by mutual influence. " — Thomas Krettek, S. J., The Review of Metaphysics

"Paul Weiss is a natural resource at a time when most philosophers are narrow, technical and obscure. Philosophy is for him a life's activity. This journal, even more than his systematic books, is the expression of philosophy in him. " — David Weissman
