Abstract in different language: This study focuses on the origins of A. N. Whitehead’s metaphysical thought. First, the basic features of Whitehead’s pan-physics project and its differences from the metaphysical synthesis are described. It is shown what pos- sible motives led Whitehead to the construction of a complex system of ideas, and its basic char- acteristic features are analyzed. Three main pil- lars of Whitehead’s organismic philosophy are de- scribed, in the spirit of Ford’s compositional ana- lysis of the work Science and the Modern World, and arguments for the concept of organic mechan- ism instead of the materialistic view of mechanism are defended. Finally, through imaginative leaps of mind, it is shown how Whitehead arrives at the highest metaphysical principles by means of the basic organismic principles.
