Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947) constructed and refined an elaborate cosmology describing the creative nature of God, reality, and the relationship between God and the world while living through the ever-changing vistas presented by science and mathematics during the second half of the nineteenth century. By examining the relational creativity in community, continuum, and dipolar relations as presented in the life and work of Whitehead, this paper illustrates the continued value of Whitehead’s work. Not only the value of his ideas, but also the value of the process, of faith seeking understanding, and the ever-creative process of becoming.
