[This book] redefines the concept of modern science. Presaging by more than half a century most of today's cutting-edge thought on the cultural ramifications of science and technology, [the author] demands that readers understand and celebrate the contemporary, historical, and cultural context of scientific discovery. Taking readers through the history of modern science, [he] shows how cultural history has affected science over the ages in relation to such major intellectual themes as romanticism, relativity, quantum theory, religion, and movements for social progress. -Back cover.

"Originally published in 1920 and based on the Tarner Lectures in the philosophy of science, this early work by Alfred North Whitehead made an important contribution to the development of philosophic naturalism. It featured his assessment of the impact of Einstein's theories and the new findings of modern physics on nature." "Whitehead critiques generally accepted ideas about substance, space, and time, as inherited from ancient Greek philosophers and as modified in the Enlightenment. Although Whitehead accepted Einstein's theory of relativity, he took issue with Einstein's interpretation of it. Instead of positing matter as the substratum of the universe, Whitehead argued for the "event" and the "process of becoming" as the starting points for analyzing reality. He thought that this "organic" interpretation was closer to our direct, everyday experience of attributes and their relations than the abstract notion of matter assumed by philosophers and scientists for so many centuries."--BOOK JACKET.
