About the Author
An English mathematician and philosopher, Alfred North Whitehead provided the foundation for the shool of thought known as process philosophy. With an academic career that spanned from Cambridge to Harvard, Whitehead wrote extensively on mathematics, metaphysis, and philosophy. He died in Massachusetts in 1947.

Whitehead was a mathematician, philosopher of science, and a metaphysician. That is metaphysics, not as in mumbo jumbo nonsense, but as in the original sense of an explanation of ultimate reality. The ultimate reality for Whitehead and process philosophers and theologians is not things or ideas but creative process.
So, in keeping it real I'll say, If you give a sh*t about actual reality, and I mean that literally for emphasis, let's face it, most people only like reality if it involves getting into hair pulling arguments, throwing drinks, misunderstands on purpose, and doing hilariously horrible things to other "contestants" to get camera time, because nothing is real unless it is on TV.
Well, Whitehead's P&R has more drama, more confrontation, and if you can decode his words into the meaningless drivel we call natural language you will get a dose of reality that may be more than you can handle.
