The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato. – A.N. Whitehead
The chief danger to philosophy is narrowness in the selection of evidence. – A.N. Whitehead
In this interview with Sam Webster we discuss the English philosopher and mathematician Alfred North Whitehead. Whitehead’s most famous for his lectures given at Harvard where he lays out process philosophy. This is a fundamentally different way of understanding reality than the standard Newtonian and Aristotelian way of viewing reality. It goes substantially beyond relativity theory and helps us make sense of mystical and magical experiences. It states that substance does not exist, only process exists.
Sam and I discuss Whitehead in the context of Thelema, magic and paganism. It is a world view and philosophy that should help some people understand the work they’re doing in these fields.
Philosophy is as vitally important as ever.
