Panentheism, the other God of the philosophers : from Plato to the present

Cooper, John W., 1947-

In Panentheism: The Other God of the Philosophers, John W. Cooper traces panentheism (the view that the world is within God's being while God is yet more than the world) from Plato to the present. While Cooper himself rejects the panentheistic worldview (as do I) he does an excellent job of tracing its historical development and framing it as the most prominent alternative to traditional (classic) theism.
