  • A station can also be defined in the character of an abstractive element. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • There are classes of these abstractive elements which are of great importance. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • The first thing to do is to get hold of the class of abstractive elements which are in some sense the points of space. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • According to my own theory it only differentiates itself from time at a somewhat developed stage of the abstractive process. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • Two abstractive sets may each cover the other. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • In all cases however I use situation to express a relation between objects and events and not between objects and abstractive elements. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • We now pass to the investigation of possible connexions between abstractive sets. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • In particular we can conceive an abstractive set of which all the members have point-contact at the same event-particle. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • We have got to annex some condition to the root property of being covered by any abstractive set which it covers. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • In so doing we are also cutting out those abstractive elements which cover sets of event-particles, without these elements being event-particles themselves. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • Furthermore it was also noted that there were many spatial abstractive elements which we had not yet defined. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • Its particular property of being closed prevents it from being definable as an abstractive element. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • Accordingly an event-particle could cover no other abstractive element. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • Such a segment can also be defined as an abstractive element. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • It is evident that any two abstractive sets which are equal to a third abstractive set are equal to each other. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • Thus an abstractive set is effectively the entity meant when we consider an instant of time without temporal extension. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • In my last lecture I have already investigated one class of abstractive elements, namely moments. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • You will remember that in my last lecture I defined the concept of an abstractive set of durations. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • Each moment is a group of abstractive sets, and the events which are members of these sets are all members of one family of durations. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
  • It is then easy to prove that there will be no abstractive set with the property of being covered by every abstractive set which it covers. Cited from The Concept of Nature, by Alfred North Whitehead
