Alfred North Whitehead (Author). It is true that, in the explicit mathematical treatments of the second half of the book, Whitehead is using Euclidean geometry. But the idea that the "flat-metric" plays any central role in Whitehead's theory is explicitly repudiated on the VERY FIRST PAGE of text in Whitehead's book. Whitehead makes it absolutely clear that he is only using "flat" geometry for purposes of mathematical convenience; it plays no essential role in his larger theory. Title is misleading, there is & Principle of Relativity' whereas this should be read & Principle of Gravity'. One person found this helpful.

WHITEHEAD, Alfred North. Cambridge: University Press. 8vo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine; pp. xii + 190, diagrams to text; minimal rubbing to head and foot of spine, near fine. Provenance: ffep with pencil signature of the author's daughter Jessie Whitehead, herself well-known as a mountaineer, Arabist and pipe-smoking eccentric. Whitehead's critique of Einstein is an attempt to harmonise the theory of relativity with common sense. He makes some important points about the problems of measurements raised by Einstein's theory

Alfred North Whitehead, who began his career as a mathematician, ranks as the foremost philosopher in the twentieth century to construct a speculative system of philosophical cosmology. After his graduation from Cambridge University, he lectured there until 1910 on mathematics. This work established the derivation of mathematics from logical foundations and has transformed the philosophical.

Whitehead Alfred North. An alternative to the Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity by Alfred North Whitehead, one of the twentieth century's most original metaphysicians and a major figure in mathematical logic. include The Organization of Thought (1916), An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Natural Knowledge (1919), The Concept of Nature (1920), Science and the Modern World (1925), Religion in the Making (1926), Symbolism (1927), The Aims of Education and Other Essays (1929), Process and Reality (1929), Adventures of Ideas (1933), and Essays in Science and Philosophy.

Whitehead rejected Einstein’s original interpretation of gravity as published in the Annalen der Physik in 1916. In 1922 Whitehead bundled the majority of his lectures on an alternative and empirically almost equivalent theory in a book entitled The Principle of Relativity with Applications to Physical Science.

carousel previous carousel next. THE doctrine of relativity affects every branch of natural science, not excluding the biological sciences. In general, however, this impact of the new doctrine on the older sciences lies in the future and will disclose itself in ways not yet apparent. Relativity, in the form of novel formulae relating time and space, first developed in connection with electromagnetism, including light phenomena. Einstein then proceeded to show its bearing on the formulae for gravitation. The philosopher advised me to omit the mathematics, and the mathematician urged the cutting out of the philosophy.
