British Philosopher. Known to most of Nick’s friends only as Russel’s collaborator on the Principia Mathematica. Known to most of the world only as the originator of something preposterous called process theology, which is almost as silly as Universal Unitarianism, but not quite. Known to a few students of Phil Ed as the author of a really neat collection of essays on that topic, in which he stresses the importance of dynamism and rhythm in teaching, among other things.

“I mean ‘understanding’ in the sense in which it is used in the French proverb, ‘To understand all is to forgive all.’”
