Whitehead's philosophy offers a bridge between religion and science. Part of that bridge was built in Chapter Twelve of his book, "Science and the Modern World" (published in 1924). The chapter, titled "Religion and Science," discusses the relations between religion and science in the context of modern history and culture. Whitehead argues that both religion and science are essential for human progress; that they should not be seen as conflicting, but as complementary and mutually enriching; and that religion can and should develop over time, discarding outdated dogmas, in the same spirit that science develops. He also proposes a new conception of God as the principle of creativity and order in the universe, and a new role for religion as the source of vision and values for humanity. Whitehead's view of God is more thoroughly developed in two later books, "Process and Reality" (published in 1929) and "Adventures of Ideas" (published in 1933). It is from Process and Reality that many process theologians draw in developing their views on God. See Six Ways of Understanding God.
