£60.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Hardcover, black cloth with gilt lettering on spine. Published by Cambridge University Press, first edition, 1920.

Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947) was a British mathematician and philosopher who was the main founder of the school of process philosophy.

Most of the chapters of this book were first delivered as the inaugural course of Tarner Lectures in the philosophy of science at Trinity College, Cambridge, in November 1919. The last two chapters were added for publication, to summarise and conclude the book.

Hardback, no dust jacket. Bookplate on the front pastedown indicates that this copy belonged to Balliol College, Oxford, but there are no other obvious signs of library ownership. Some wear to top and bottom of spine and hinges, foxing to endpapers and aging internally, but the book remains in very good condition.
