ABSTRACT. Stapp contends that a core issue for both Whiteheadian process and quantum process is the emergence of the discrete from the continuous. The Whiteheadian approach, according to Malin, is uniquely appropriate as a metaphysical system that can encompass the findings of quantum physics. The continuity of nature is due to events, and the atomicity in nature is due to objects; the continuity of nature is due to extension, while the atomicity is due to the relation between atomic objects and events (Haeften).
