To show that Whitehead's metaphysics offers a means of understanding the human situation and the all-important role of moral decision. Chapter 1 is an attempt to present his view of things, an essential feature of which is his use of the word "aesthetic" in the widest sense, to indicate experience in general. Chapter 2 sets out the place of value in the scheme and how it may be analysed and assessed, with particular reference to moral value. Chapter 3 discusses ethical codes and their application, and presents Whitehead's insistence that codes for use in a living process cannot be rigid, but do, nevertheless, express ultimate principles.
