Contemporary Whitehead Studies

Series Introduction

Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947) had, and still has, significant impacts in mathematics, physics, biology, sociology, evolutionary theory, education, philosophy, and cultural studies. He was a well respected member of the British Royal Society of Science, and interacted with some of the great thinkers of the 20th century, such as Rudolf Carnap, Albert Einstein, Sir Arthur Eddington, Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and Talcott Parsons, some of whom were his colleagues and students. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, Whitehead published a unique series of ground-breaking philosophical works such as Science and the Modern World, Process and Reality, Adventures of Ideas, and Modes of Thought. Through these works he developed a fresh philosophical account of the world (from philosophy of science to philosophy of religion) in dialogue with, and criticism of, the Western tradition of philosophy between Plato and Kant and its foundations.
