Alfred North Whitehead
Alfred North Whitehead (b.1861 - d.1947), British mathematician, logician and philosopher best known for his work in mathematical logic and the philosophy of science. In collaboration with Bertrand Russell , he authored the landmark three-volume Principia Mathematica (1910, 1912, 1913) and contributed significantly to twentieth-century logic and metaphysics. Although there are important continuities throughout his career, Whitehead's intellectual life is often divided into three main periods. The first corresponds roughly with his time at Cambridge, from 1884 to 1910. It was during these years that he worked primarily on issues in mathematics and logic. It was also during this time that he collaborated with Russell. The second main period, covering the years from 1910 to 1924, corresponds with his time at London. During these years Whitehead concentrated mainly, but not exclusively, on issues in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of education. The third main period corresponds roughly with his time at Harvard, from 1924 onward. It was during this time that he worked on more general issues in philosophy, including the development of a comprehensive metaphysical system which has come to be known as process philosophy

Alfred North Whitehead 's father, also named Alfred Whitehead, was an Anglican clergyman from Ramsgate. He is said to have been an upright man with countless friends and Alfred North Whitehead's son, North Whitehead, wrote of his grandfather:- He never asked a favour of anyone and never shirked what he considered to be a duty, but it cannot be said that he spent more time absorbing the lessons of the New Testament than was necessitated by his calling. Canon Alfred Whitehead, the mathematician's father, married Maria Sarah Buckmaster, who came from London, on 20 December 1851. She is described as (see [6]);- ... an unimaginative, small minded woman with some wit but no sense of humour. Alfred and Maria Whitehead had four children, with Alfred North Whitehead as the youngest of the family. He had two brother who were seven and eight years older than he was, and a sister who was two years older. Whitehead was always treated by his parents as the baby of the family and, rather surprisingly, they considered him a sickly and frail child when it appears that this was not the case. Whitehead was not sent to primary school because his parents thought that he was too delicate, so he was taught at home by his father until he was 14. Other than the usual childhood illnesses he was, despite his parents views, a healthy child. He received much affection from his father and brothers (but sadly little from his mother) and he seems to have had a childhood which was not unhappy, even though he was on his own a great deal and must have been somewhat lonely.

Logic says which forms of inference are valid and which are not. Traditionally, logic is studied as a branch of philosophy, but it can also be considered a branch of mathematics and Computer Science.

won't k e e p something must be d o n e about them." ~ Alfred North Whitehead Art flourishes where there is a sense of adventure, a sense of nothing having been done before, of complete freedom to experiment; but when caution comes in you get repetition, and repetition is the death of art. Philosophy asks the simple question: What is it all about? One main factor in the upward trend of animal life has been the power of wandering. Religion is what the individual does with his own solitariness. Everything of importance has been seen by someone who did not discover it. A clash of doctrines is not a disaster – it is an opportunity We think in generalities, but we live in detail. Seek simplicity but distrust it. Every really new idea looks crazy at first. Education with inert ideas is not only useless, it is above all things harmful. Periods of tranquility are seldom prolific of creative achievement. Mankind has to be stirred up. It requires a very unusual mind to make an analysis of the obvious. Art flourishes when there is a sense of adventure.

Alfred North Whitehead
Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947) was an English mathematician and philosopher. He graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge in 1884. There he was a lecturer in mathematics until 1911. At the Univ. of London he was a lecturer in applied mathematics and mechanics (1911–14) and professor of mathematics (1914–24). From 1924 onward, he was professor of philosophy at Harvard. Whitehead’s distinction rests upon his contributions to mathematics and logic, the philosophy of science, and the study of metaphysics. In the field of mathematics, Whitehead extended the range of algebraic procedures and, in collaboration with Bertrand Russell, wrote Principia Mathematica (3 vol., 1910–13), a landmark in the study of logic. His inquiries into the structure of science provided the background for his metaphysical writings. He criticized traditional categories of philosophy for their failure to convey the essential interrelation of matter, space, and time. For this reason he invented a special vocabulary to communicate his concept of reality, which he called the philosophy of organism. He formulated a system of ultimate

Alfred North Whitehead
Alfred North Whitehead (1861 - 1947) was a British philosopher and mathematician who worked in logic, mathematics, philosophy of science and metaphysics. His best known work is the Principia Mathematica which he wrote with Bertrand Russell. Whitehead is perhaps most well known for developing process philosophy, which was then developed into process theology by many liberal theologian/philosophers, such as Charles Hartshorne. Process theology has since been accepted as a valid way of understanding God by some liberal Christian and Jewish scholars and laypeople.
Process philosophy
Process philosophy is a metaphysical system developed by Alfred North Whitehead, and described in his book Process and Reality . Process philosophy believes that fundamental elements of the universe are occasions of experience . According to this notion, what people commonly think of as concrete objects are actually just successions of these occasions of experience. Occasions of experience can be collected into groupings; something complex such as a human being is thus a grouping of many smaller occasions of experience. According to Whitehead, everything in the universe is characterized by experience (which is not to be confused with consciousness); there is no mind-body duality under this system, because "mind" is simply seen as a very developed kind of experienceing.
Whitehead's philosophy resembles in some ways the concept of monads first proposed by

16. Alfred North Whitehead For The Muddleheaded
A laudatory essay by Richard Lubbock, expounding the value of whitehead's ideas for Western thought.
Alfred North Whitehead
Philosopher for the Muddleheaded
T he moment I was born, I knew that William James was right. The world of the new-born baby is indeed "All one great blooming, buzzing confusion". I was alarmed and baffled by the tumult that raged around and inside me. Intuition told me, "Here's something that matters greatly." Had I possessed language, I would have demanded "What the devil's going on here?" That's the prime philosophical question, and I've been trying out different answers ever since. I have come to believe that Alfred North Whitehead can tell me what it's all about. In my view the writings of Whitehead point at the most hopeful and all-embracing philosophy of all time. Whitehead aimed for nothing less than the refutation of gloomy scientific materialism. He hoped to reconstruct the moral universe without disrupting the beneficence of science. The structure he devised is not everything a devout religious believer would wish. Nor has his eloquence yet overswept Western culture and conquered it. Nonetheless, when they become better known, his insights will replace the nihilism, and correct the moral slackness of our times. Once you have allowed Whitehead's powerful engine of hope to transform your attitude to life you will never again need to consult another philosopher. Those sinister philosophical miseries of the 20th centuryyou know who I mean: malignant Heidegger, disjointed Wittgenstein, cross-eyed Husserl, sour Sartreyou can consign their jeremiads to the fire. They failed to salute the quantum and relativistic earthquakes of our century and so they're dust, history, trash. Forget 'em.

Process Metaphysics
Many philosophers have attempted to build a process metaphysics or an evolutionary philosophy, including Alfred North Whitehead, Teilhard de Chardin, Herbert Spencer, and Henry Bergson. Their main idea is to ground a philosophy on change or development, rather than on static concepts like matter or mind. However, these early process philosophies are characterized by vagueness and mysticism, and they tend to see evolution as teleological, goal directed, guided by some supra-physical force, rather than as the blind variation and selection process that we postulate. They are thus not constructivist in the sense discussed in section constructivism.
