Publisher's Summary

Fritjof Capra's emerging theory of living systems offers a unified view of mind, matter, and life. Over the past 25 years, scientists have challenged conventional views of evolution and the organization of living systems. They've developed revolutionary theories that have profound implications, not only for science and philosophy, but also for business, politics, health care, education, and everyday life. Fritjof Capra, author of The Tao of Physics, has been at the forefront of this revolution and now, in The Web of Life, he offers a brilliant synthesis of these exciting breakthroughs.

think beyond the details

Capra presents some interesting concepts here that are definitely thinking outside the box. He shows how everything cannot be explained by analyzing it's parts and that things are more than the sum of their parts. The scientific model may have helped us understand some things in our world but it has its limitations. Capra's discussion of open and closed systems, networks, feedback loops, and cybernetics show the interconnectedness of life. It will force you to think on a different level and look at the bigger picture.

Deep thinking and nice emergent mind

I love when somebody risks to think out of the box in a very accurate, instintive, sincere and, at the same time, scientific way. I love the courage of people like Capra, Goodwin, Sheldrake and others to bring out an original thinking (even if it is not) in relation with the stablished, recognized (by editors and universities (money holders)) and more known theories. Take the time to enjoy this book and your own thinking.
