    • 1941, Charles Hartshorne, Man’s Vision of God and the Logic of Theism, New York, N.Y.: Harper and Bros., OCLC 1469363, page 348:
      Just as [absolute perfection in some respects, relative perfection in all others] is the whole positive content of perfection, so CW, or the conception of the Creator-and-the-Whole-of-what-he-has-created as constituting one life, the super-whole which in its everlasting essence is uncreated (and does not necessitate just the parts which the whole has) but in its de facto concreteness is created – this panentheistic doctrine contains all of deism and pandeism except their arbitrary negations.
  2. (countable) the result of being concrete
