Reseña del editor:

Capra argues that at the end of the 20th century we are shifting away from the mechanistic world of Descartes and Newton to a holistic, ecological view. He establishes patterns between ideas from such diverse fields as Buddhism and quantum physics.

Contraportada:

Fritjof Capra is at the forefront of the revolution in modern science which has challenged a conventional mechanistic view of the world based on the thinking of Descartes and Newton and brought us towards a holistic, ecological view.

Here, Capra offers a brilliant, radical synthesis of such recent scientific breakthroughs as the theory of complexity, Gaia theory, chaos theory and other explanations of the properties of organisms, social systems and ecosystems. His findings – based on ten years of research and discussion with scientists from around the world – provide an extraordinary new foundation for ecological policies that will allow us to build and sustain communities without diminishing opportunities for future generations, and come closer than ever before to answering the question, 'What is life?'

'This stunning synthesis, by an inspired scientist, draws scientists, experts, and decision makers and concerned citizens into broader multi-disciplinary networks and dialogues about human development and the future of all life on earth'
HAZEL HENDERSON, author of 'The Politics of the Solar Age and Paradigms in Progress'

'Conceptually more extraordinary than anything Capra has yet written ... Doctor Capra, indeed, is a physicien de la terre'
JAY GRIFFITHS, 'Guardian'

'An important book, even for someone of Dr Capra's standing ... a synthesis of the scientific, the philosophical and the spiritual dimensions of systems thinking'
GRAHAM LAWTON, 'Times Higher Education Supplement'

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 1997. Paperback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The vitality and accessibility of Fritjof Capra s ideas have made him perhaps the most eloquent spokesperson of the latest findings emerging at the frontiers of scientific, social, and philosophical thought. In his international bestsellers The Tao of Physics and The Turning Point, he juxtaposed physics and mysticism to define a new vision of reality. In The Web of Life, Capra takes yet another giant step, setting forth a new scientific language to describe interrelationships and interdependence of psychological, biological, physical, social, and cultural phenomena--the web of life. During the past twenty-five years, scientists have challenged conventional views of evolution and the organization of living systems and have developed new theories with revolutionary philosophical and social implications. Fritjof Capra has been at the forefront of this revolution. In The Web of Life, Capra offers a brilliant synthesis of such recent scientific breakthroughs as the theory of complexity, Gaia theory, chaos theory, and other explanations of the properties of organisms, social systems, and ecosystems. Capra s surprising findings stand in stark contrast to accepted paradigms of mechanism and Darwinism and provide an extraordinary new foundation for ecological policies that will allow us to build and sustain communities without diminishing the opportunities for future generations.Now available in paperback for the first time, The Web of Life is cutting-edge science writing in the tradition of James Gleick s Chaos, Gregory Bateson s Mind and Matter, and Ilya Prigogine s Order Out of Chaos.
