I have suffered a great deal from writers who have quoted this or that sentence of mine either out of its context or in juxtaposition to some incongruous matter which quite distorted my meaning , or destroyed it altogether.

Alfred North Whitehead

Mathematician, Physicist, Philosopher. His student, Bertrand Russell, and he authored Principia Mathematica. His interest in epistemology led him to read all of Western Philosophy. When he retired from Cambridge, Harvard invited him to teach philosophy. He developed what is called Process Philosophy in which the indivisible units of reality are drops of experience that are subjects in the process of becoming actual; once concluded, they are objects. Process is fundamental to objects; physics focuses on objects but the connections in the universe are subjective in nature and therefore internal before becoming separate objects.
