Alfred North Whitehead

If civilization continues to advance, in the next two thousand years the overwhelming novelty in human thought will be the dominance of mathematical understanding.
Alfred North Whitehead. (I have been unable to track the source of this quotation with any assurance. However, it evidently came from comments he wrote on Plato's form of the Good, in a section entitled, "Footnotes to Plato," in his book Process and Reality. I have not yet had the opportunity to verify this.)
