The Edinburgh Critical Edition of the Complete Works of Alfred North Whitehead

Series Editor(s): Brian G. Henning, George R. Lucas Jr.

Alfred North Whitehead was one of the 20th-century’s most original and significant philosophers. For the first time, this critical edition brings together his complete published works and previously unpublished lectures, papers and correspondence in a series of critically edited volumes.

The edition will include a projected six volumes of Whitehead’s unpublished works, including newly discovered materials long thought lost or destroyed. Many of these illustrations, equations and chalkboard diagrams used by Whitehead in classroom settings have never been seen before by contemporary scholars. They will illuminate many factors that influenced the development of Whitehead's initial and later thought and elucidate, in considerably greater detail than ever before, many of his principal philosophical concepts set out in his published works.

New critical editions of Science and the Modern World, Symbolism: Its Meaning and Effect, The Function of Reason, Process and Reality and collections of later essays and public lectures such as Adventures of Ideas, Modes of Thought and Essays on Science and Philosophy will round out this ambitious edition, making it the ultimate scholarly collection of Whitehead's work.
