Alfred North Whitehead

Author Code: EANW

Born: Feb. 15, 1861 - Ramsgate, Kent, England

Died: Dec. 30, 1947 - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA

Educated at Sherborne School in Dorset and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he continued as an instructor after graduating, Whitehead excelled in mathematics. In 1898, he published Treatise on Universal Algebra with Applications, which was well-received. In 1903, he was named a Fellow of the Royal Society. He remained at Trinity until 1910 when he moved to University College, London. In collaboration with his former pupil, Bertrand Russell, he published Principia Mathematica in three volumes between 1910 and 1913, one of the most important mathematical works of the 20th century. After this, Whitehead concentrated more on the philosophy of science. In 1914, he was appointed Professor of Applied Mathematics at Imperial College and in 1920, published The Concept of Nature. In 1924, he was appointed Professor of Philosophy at Harvard University. In 1927, he delivered the Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh, which were subsequently published in 1929 as Process and Reality and which became the foundation for process philosophy. In 1931, he was elected to the British Academy and in 1945 he received the Order of Merit. His many works include An Introduction to Mathematics (1911), The Principle of Relativity (1922), Science and the Modern World (1925), Adventures of Ideas (1933), Nature and Life (1934) and Modes of Thought (1938).
