Charles Hartshorne was an American philosopher who concentrated primarily on the philosophy of religion and metaphysics, but also contributed to ornithology. He developed the neoclassical idea of God and produced a modal proof of the existence of God that was a development of St. Anselm's ontological argument. Hartshorne is also noted for developing Alfred North Whitehead's process philosophy into process theology. After Hartshorne worked at Harvard University, he became a professor of philosophy at the University of Chicago (1928-1955), and was also a member of the University's Federated Theological Faculty (1943-1955). He then taught at Emory University (1955-62), followed by the University of Texas (1962-retirement). He published his last article at age 96 and delivered his last lecture at 98.
