Philosopher and man of science, Whitehead is the man who went farthest on the road we all must travel. Here, recorded as conversations in his own home and clearly modeled on Eckermann s dialogues with Goethe, are some of the landmarks, signposts, milestones and noble scenery of that journey, and they are presented there in a volume The Washington Post called "as readable as it is provocative." Whitehead's mind is a compass for the modern world. In these pages the immense reaches of his thought in philosophy, religion, science, statesmanship, education, literature, art and conduct of life are gathered and edited by critic and writer Lucien Price. Time, the present; scene, the Cambridge of Harvard (with flashbacks to London, Cambridge, England, and his native Ramsgate in Kent); cast, undergraduates along with men and women, often eminent, who join in his penetrating, audacious, and exhilarating verbal forays. The subjects discussed range for the homeliest details of modern living to the greatest ideas that have animated the mind of man over the past thirty centuries. A noble mind is here exposed.

From the Publisher:

Here is the talk that shifts effortlessly among the most pertinent issues in the past and present in such a way that it breaks bonds of convention to create new issues and is a complex view of a great mind. A valuable tribute.
