Two fundamental principles underlie this philosophy: the plurality of events and the primacy of subjectivity or inclusion. Intrinsic to these principles are Hartshorne’s view of internal and external relations.

The shift is from the human (anthropological) to the object (cosmological), wherein "subjectivity" (potency, powers) may be identified but never exhausted. "The subjectivity in question here is, of course, not only human subjectivity but the subjectivity of every actual occasion constituting all the things of this world."

"Wherever a process of life communicates an eagerness to him who lives it, there the life becomes genuinely significant. Sometimes the eagerness is more knit up with the motor activities, sometimes with the perceptions, sometimes with the imagination, sometimes with reflective thought. But, wherever it is found, there is the zest, the tingle, the excitement of reality; and there is 'importance' in the only real and positive sense in which importance ever anywhere can be."
- William James, "On a Certain Blindness in Human Beings"
