"Matthew Arnold’s God was a power, not ourselves, which makes for righteousness; that was bad enough; William James’s God was a power, one of ourselves (a regular guy and the Captain of the Team) working with us for our own ends, though neither He nor we know quite what these ends are—anyway, we pull all together. Whitehead’s God is slightly more respectable, as He ought to be; He is the Principle of Order. But like James’s God, he is wholly incapable of starting a Religion. TS Eliot • NYRB
