Varieties of Panpsychism?

Jon Cogburn has a post up discussing panpsychism, HERE.  He makes an interesting distinction between forms of agency-based versus intellectual or concept-based panpsychisms advocated by Schopenhauer and Hegel.

He then proceeds to mention where Bergson, Whitehead, or Deleuze may fit into one of his three articlations mentioned in the post (physical Cartesian panpsychism; agential or "will" panpsychism; or a panpyschism of mind understood as concept-formation).  He also mentions Schelling too, placing him in the agential/will category, which makes sense to me.
