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.

These were published in as Process and Reality, the book that founded process philosophy, a major contribution to Western metaphysics. Whitehead felt that just as the entire universe is in constant flow and change, God, as source of the universe, is viewed as growing and changing.

Denis Hurtubise has demonstrated the falsity of this assumption (Hurtubise n.d.). In his book, Nature Loves to Hidey Shimon Malin provides a wonderfully lucid and fascinating account of the development of quantum mechanics in the twen-tieth century and argues that the baffling puzzles of the quantum world can be understood in terms of Whiteheads process metaphysics.1 Malin thus joins an.

In the physical world each epochal occasion is a definite limited physical event, limited both as to space and time, but with time-duration as well as with its full spatial dimensions. The epochal occasions are the primary units of the actual community, and the community is composed of the units.

Alfred North Whitehead was an English mathematician (best known among scientists for his work with his student Bertrand Russell on the Principia Mathematica).But in philosophy and theology, Whitehead is best known as a philosopher whose later work at Harvard included his Process Philosophy and the subsequent development of a Process Theology.
