The present book does not claim to achieve a complete description of all the aspects of the late Whitehead's worldview. Its aim is rather to stress some specific features of his teachings, such as his views concerning rationality, dynamic holism, things and objects, events, anticipation, creativity, nature, organism, and life.
This book should be useful not only for process philosophers, but also for all scholars who are interested in the development of process philosophical ideas.
