By Fritjof Capra
Trade paperback book
Capra sets forth a new scientific language to describe the interrelationships and interdependences of psychological, biological, physical, social, and cultural phenomena. Exploring the shift from linear thinking to systems thinking in the sciences, he offers a lucid synthesis of such recent scientific proposals as chaos theory, Gaia theory, and the theory of complexity, as well as other explanation of the properties of organisms, social systems, and ecosystems. His articulate vision offers profound implications for how we can perceive business, politics, health care, education, and everyday life.
