Alfred North Whitehead (AKA A. Whitehead) ( - ) was a British mathematician, logician and philosopher. He is considered one of the founding figures of Analytic Philosophy, and he contributed significantly to 20th Century Logic, especially the new symbolic type of Logic he developed in the epochal "Principia Mathematica", along with co-author Bertrand Russell.

As a lecturer in applied mathematics and mechanics at the University of London--generally considered to be his second period of activity--Whitehead focuseed his attention on the philosophy of natural science.

In The concept of nature (), Whitehead argued that nature consists only of what the senses perceive/5(21). The key figures in this history are Plato, who ironically provided the philosophical basis both for classical and neoclassical concepts, and three great figures in process theism: Henri Bergson, Alfred North Whitehead, and Hartshorne.

It is a much simpler concept of God that Whitehead held at an earlier stage In the composition of Process and Reality before he developed his later concept of God as having primordial and consequent natures.

God was, at that earlier stage, the primordial (7), non-temporal actual. Chapter Whitehead Without God by Donald W. Sherburne. Sherburne proposes naturalizing Whitehead’s metaphysics by exorcising the concept “God” and all supernaturalism, and by attacking inconsistencies in the ontological arguments of Hartshorne and Cobb.

In his paper “the problem of God in Whitehead’s system,” 26 Ivor Leclerc refers to Whitehead’s discussion in Religion in the Making of the three “formative elements” (which we have touched upon in “Whitehead’s God and Plato’s Receptacle”).

Examining Brand: Ozymandias Press. Excellent little book. Gilson's main contention seems to be this: throughout the history of philosophy, there have been two tendencies: (1) to separate the philosophical first principle from the living object of religion (e.g.

Platonic Ideas from gods); (2) to approach the study of God in an essentialist manner i.e. to focus on Him as Good, Him as Thought, Him as a Living Thing, etc/5. God and the World.

Alfred North Whitehead. The concept of “God” is the way in which we understand this incredible fact—that what cannot be, yet is. Section VII. Thus the consequent nature of God is composed of a multiplicity of elements with individual self-realiza-tion.

Rapp - - Dissertation, Duquesne University An Unscientific Physics: Hegel and Whitehead on the Philosophy of : Hans Driesch. Ontological arguments attempt to show that the very concept or idea of God implies his reality; that is, that ones being able to clearly conceive of God somehow implies that God actually exists.

The ontological argument is a priori. The God concept, in whatever particular form it may take, is already part of the data taken up by philosophy. I think in our contemporary context, there is an urgent need for philosophy to secularize God, such that supernaturalism no longer seems necessary as an ethico-cosmic counter-argument to scientific materialism so far as the vast.

In vedic period monotheistic god Concept culminated in the semi abstract semi personified form of espoused the view that "god" is a creation of man, rather than man being a creation of "god".

In his book, The Process theology is a school of thought influenced by the metaphysical process philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead. Whitehead developed a revision of the classical Platonic-Aristotelian-Thomist western philosophy concept to recast God as a dynamic God.

Slight corrections in some classical constructions of reality enabled this metaphysic to account for a full interaction of God with the whole of the physical universe/5(36). The object of attitudes valorized in the major religious traditions is typically regarded as maximally great.

Reading this book, written just three years before P & R, will show people who have been exposed to "process theology" that Whitehead's own beliefs about God were really much more simple and poetic.5/5(4).Whitehead propounds a philosophy based on the scientific theory of relativity.
