Alfred North Whitehead
First published Tue May 21, 1996; substantive revision Mon Apr 5, 2010 Bertrand Russell , he authored the landmark three-volume Principia Mathematica (1910, 1912, 1913) and contributed significantly to twentieth-century logic, philosophy of science 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, 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

WHITEHEAD, Alfred North The Aims of Education and Other Essays MacMillan, New York 1929 (this edition 1959) This book contains ten addresses or papers delivered or written by A.N. Whitehead at different times between 1912 and 1928. The general theme is "education on its intellectual side." The topics dealt with are: I The Aims of Education (24 pp.) II The Rhythm of Education (20 pp.) III The Rhythmic Claims of Freedom and Discipline (20 pp.) IV Technical Education and Its Relation to Science and Literature (28 pp.) V The Place of Classics in Education (22 pp.) VI The Mathematical Curriculum (19 pp.) VII Universities and Their Function (16 pp.) VIII The Organisation of Thought (26 pp.) IX The Anatomy of Some Scientific Ideas (51 pp.) X Space, Time and Relativity (15 pp.) Only the first seven essays are reviewed here, since they are the only ones directly related to education. One main idea runs throughout the volume: "The students are alive, and the purpose of education is to stimulate and guide that self-development." The corollary of this idea is that "teachers also should be alive with living thoughts." In short, the whole book is a protest against dead knowledge, that is to say, against inert ideas."

    Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
    Alfred North Whitehead
    Alfred North Whitehead was a notable mathematician, logician, educator and philosopher. The staggering complexity of Whitehead’s thought, coupled with the extraordinary literary quality of his writing, have conspired to make Whitehead (in an oft-repeated saying) one of the most-quoted but least-read philosophers in the Western canon. While he is widely recognized for his collaborative work with Bertrand Russell on the Principia Mathematica , he also made highly innovative contributions to philosophy, especially in the area of process metaphysics. Whitehead was an Englishman by birth and a mathematician by formal education. He was highly regarded by his students as a teacher and noted as a conscientious and hard-working administrator. The volume of his mathematical publication was never great, and much of his work has been eclipsed by more contemporary developments in the fields in which he specialized. Yet many of his works continue to stand out as examples of expository clarity without ever sacrificing logical rigor, while his theory of “extensive abstraction” is considered to be foundational in contemporary field of formal spatial relations known as “mereotopology.” Whitehead’s decades-long focus on the logical and algebraic issues of space and geometry which led to his work on extension, became an integral part of an explosion of profoundly original philosophical work He began publishing even as his career as an academic mathematician was reaching a close. The first wave of these philosophical works included his

    Alfred North Whitehead Biography
    Mathematician Philosopher
    Alfred North Whitehead began teaching mathematics in 1884 at Trinity College in Cambridge, England. Between 1910 and 1913 he published the three-volume work Principia Mathematica with his former student, Bertrand Russell , an attempt to define the logical foundation of science and mathematics. Whitehead taught in England until 1924, when he moved to the United States to accept a chair in philosophy from Harvard University. In 1929 he published Process and Reality , and spent the rest of his life writing and lecturing on what is called process theology.

    20. 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.
