Quotations
1925
Thus the eternal relatedness is of the form — the ÎµÎ¯Î´Î¿Ï —; the emergent actual occasion is the superject of informed value; value, as abstracted from any particular superject, is the abstract matter — the Ïλη — which is common to all actual occasions and the synthetic activity which prehends valueless possibility into superjicient informed value is the substantial activity.— Alfred North Whitehead, Science and the Modern World ISBN 0684836394
