Summary
The conclusion yielded by this three-stepped procedure is that, indeed, Whitehead's method of extensive abstraction from its origins in 1905 through its final, metaphysical appearance in Process and Reality, is a mathematical model. As such, Whitehead is cleared of many of the charges of his critics who claim that he used mathematical principles invalidly. The major issues of the Lenzen-Murphy, Grunbaum-Mays, Nagel-Lowe debates are thus satisfactorily resolved, and the worth of Whitehead's philosophy of space and time in the philosophy of science is recognized as a major contribution in bridging the gap between the level of sense observation and the level of theoretical science
