Alfred North Whitehead

Alfred North Whitehead (1861 - 1947) was a British philosopher and mathematician who worked in logic, mathematics, philosophy of science and metaphysics. His best known work in mathematics is the Principia Mathematica which he wrote with Bertrand Russell.

In philosophy, Whitehead is perhaps most well known for developing process philosophy, which was then developed into process theology by many liberal theologian/philosophers, such as Charles Hartshorne[?]. Process theology has since been accepted as a valid way of understanding God by some liberal Christian and Jewish scholars and laypeople.
