Overview

Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947) was a prominent English mathematician and philosopher who co-authored the highly influential Principia Mathematica with Bertrand Russell. Religion in the Making, which originated in a series of four lectures delivered in King's Chapel, Boston, during February 1926, constitutes an exploration of the relationship between human nature and religion. In many ways a rejection of dogma, the text explores the connection between religious transformation and the transformation of knowledge. Through this approach, the reader is encouraged to develop a conception of faith that is at home with the changing nature of experience. The permanent aspect of religion is regarded as the apprehension of permanent elements that are reconcilable with this form of change. This concise and fascinating study will be of value to anyone with an interest in philosophy and theology.
