5.0 out of 5 stars A book that will change forever how you see the world., 10 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Modes of Thought (Paperback)
Whitehead wrote clearly and simply about some of the most difficult philosophical ideas. This brief book is perfect for anyone who has ever wondered "How do I know what I know?" It is filled with gems such as "The notion of a mere fact is the triumph of the abstractive intellect"; "The whole understanding of the world consists in the analysis of process in terms of the identities and diversities of the individuals involved." Today we know a lot more about the machinery of the mind and the nature of human cognition than he did. But like Darwin who didn't really know how "genes" work, Whitehead saw things that most of us miss. You have to think "on your toes" to read him. But the reward is worth the effort. No one who claims to be an educated person should make such a claim without "reading their Whitehead."

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Modes of Thought (Paperback)
Here the most sympathetic of modern philosophers outlines his process view of science and the history of the development of science. His writing is humane and lucid, and a breath of fresh air.
