Most widely held works by Alfred North Whitehead
Process and reality : an essay in cosmology by Alfred North Whitehead ( Book )
133 editions published between 1929 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 3,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Process and Reality, Whitehead's magnum opus, is one of the major philosophical works of the modern world, and an extensive body of secondary literature has developed around it. Yet surely no significant philosophical book has appeared in the last two centuries in nearly so deplorable a condition as has this one, with its many hundreds of errors and with over three hundred discrepancies between the American (Macmillan) and the English (Cambridge) editions, which appeared in different formats with divergent paginations. The work itself is highly technical and far from easy to understand, and in many passages the errors in those editions were such as to compound the difficulties. The need for a corrected edition has been keenly felt for many decades
The aims of education & other essays by Alfred North Whitehead ( Book )
151 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The general topic of this volume is education on its intellectual side. One main idea runs through the various chapters, and it is illustrated in them from many points of view. It can be stated briefly thus: the students are alive, and the purpose of education is to stimulate and guide their self-development. It follows as a corollary from this premise, that the teachers also should be alive with living thoughts. The whole book is a protest against dead knowledge, that is to say, inert ideas. - Preface

142 editions published between 1920 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Originally published in 1920 and based on the Tarner Lectures in the philosophy of science, this early work by Alfred North Whitehead made an important contribution to the development of philosophic naturalism. It featured his assessment of the impact of Einstein's theories and the new findings of modern physics on nature." "Whitehead critiques generally accepted ideas about substance, space, and time, as inherited from ancient Greek philosophers and as modified in the Enlightenment. Although Whitehead accepted Einstein's theory of relativity, he took issue with Einstein's interpretation of it. Instead of positing matter as the substratum of the universe, Whitehead argued for the "event" and the "process of becoming" as the starting points for analyzing reality. He thought that this "organic" interpretation was closer to our direct, everyday experience of attributes and their relations than the abstract notion of matter assumed by philosophers and scientists for so many centuries."--BOOK JACKET
