By W. Mays

during this publication i've got tried to provide an account of a few of the main im portant of Whitehead's philosophical writings - his writings at the philoso phy of technological know-how in addition to his metaphysics. i've got attempted to teach that even supposing there are novelties in Whitehead's later philosophy there also are continuities along with his past paintings within the philosophy of technological know-how. For a extra distinctive account of Whitehead's metaphysics, i might refer the reader to my booklet The Philosophy of Whitehead (The Muirhead Library of Philosophy), Allen and Unwin, London 1959 (Collier Books, manhattan 1962). mostly i feel my view of Whitehead in that paintings, a minimum of so far as his metaphysics is worried, isn't really materially various from that held within the current one, even if there are a few modifications in emphasis and interpretation. I desire to thank the administrateur delegue of the Revue Internationale de Philosophie, Brussels; the publishers Allen and Unwin, London; and Sprin ger-Verlag, Heidelberg, for kindly giving me permission to post amended types of the next papers which I initially released with them: "Whitehead and the belief of Equivalence" Revue Internationale de Philoso phie, No. 56-57, 1961, pp. 167-184; "The Relevance of "On Mathematical ideas of the cloth international" to Whitehead's Philosophy," within the Relevance of Whitehead.
