On Whitehead’s Philosophy of education

Alfred North Whitehead’s Informal Philosophy of
Education

“The thought process and action process work together harmoniously, or should work harmoniously. “It has in view of progress toward harmony, but the harmony is forever active and alive.”8 The person who is truly educated has precise knowledge of some area of human endeavor, but also possesses a flexibility and versatility in other areas of thought. This educated man has comfort in this world with interest in the future and interest in the vastness of his universe. The question that will allow for comfort, precise and general knowledge? How can we have “creative harmony” and “creative disturbance” at the same time? We must note that “creative disturbance” simply means the desire to know more, the pleasant frustration of simply “wanting to know”.” 1
