Epperson has done a wonderful job showing what one of the most detailed metaphysical theories of the 20th century--Whitehead's philosophy of process--contributes to the interpretation of quantum mechanics. The book is highly recommended to anybody interested in quantum physics.
Frank Hattich - Studies in History and Philosophy of Modern Physics
Epperson's book is a clear and concerted effort to show how quantum mechanics slips neatly into the clothes of Whitehead's conceptual scheme...that the decoherence theories of Zurek, Gell-Mann, Omnès and others fit well with Whitehead's scheme of the genesis ('becoming') of his events ('actual occasions').
Peter Simons - Metascience
This book explores the relationships between Whiteheadian philosophy and quantum mechanics in quite significant detail (including discussion of all nine Categorial Obligations!) Background needed to understand technical aspects of either physics or of Whitehead's philosophy are concisely reviewed.

"Many of us in the 'process' community have felt a general congruity between Whitehead's cosmology and quantum theory, even though the latter may have directly affected Whitehead's conceptuality only tangentially. We have been glad that in the past decade there has been growing interest among quantum theorists in Whitehead's thought. We especially welcome this remarkable volume. It proposes a correlation of Whitehead's quite technical analysis of the phases of the concrescence of momentary occasions and the strange account of quantum events to which the evidence has driven physicists. At the very least, Michael Epperson has put forward ideas that warrant close attention and point fruitful directions for further inquiry. We may have here a still more successful work, which provides a definitive philosophical ground for quantum theory. In either case, this is an important, as well as a brilliant, book."

"Coming at a time when interest in correlating physics and Whitehead's philosophy has been expanding exponentially, the appearance of Epperson's book is an event of first importance. Employing the decoherence-based interpretation of quantum mechanics, Epperson shows that it can be correlated rather precisely with Whitehead's notion of 'concrescence.' Besides thereby showing how Whitehead's philosophy brings out the ontological significance of quantum mechanics, Epperson also demonstrates that students of Whitehead's philosophy will understand it better by seeing quantum mechanics as a specific exemplification of its general principles."
