Abstract:

"There are some men who cherish what ought to be. There are some men who stress what is. The former are moralists. The latter are scientists. Alfred North Whitehead was something of both." Thus Paul Weiss began his tribute to Whitehead at the time of his death, and it is, perhaps, the key to the rare quality which made Whitehead one of the most original and profound thinkers of the 20th century. This anthology includes major selections from his works, chosen with a view to include all the diverse aspects of his thought while avoiding repetition. An explanatory page before each selection states why the editors felt it to be important and representative. There is also a glossary of philosophical terms explaining the specialized meanings Whitehead attached to these terms.--Adapted from book jacket.
