The Universal of the “Way of Thinking”: A Comparative Study of the Way of Thinking of Whitehead and Marx

Haixia LI


Whitehead and Marx respectively stand at the peak in different times and they use different ways of thinking to think of the world. However, they two explain the same problem from different perspectives, and they both go beyond a static perspective to view the world of the various schools of traditional Western philosophy and have turned to using dynamic perspectives to think of the world. They answer the same question for people in different eras—the world is an organic whole world. This paper compares Whitehead’s “organic” way of thinking and Marx’s “practical” way of thinking to find something in common—a whole way of thinking. This way of thinking makes us understand questions, raise questions and solve questions from the perspective of the whole field of view, and then allow us to correctly understand and grasp the dynamic world.
