18 May The Systemic Vision of Life
Over the past 35 years, a radically new conception of life has emerged at the forefront of contemporary science. This new view transcends the mechanistic view and involves a new kind of thinking - 'systemic' thinking. Capra and Luisi integrate in this book the many concepts, models and theories of this new scientific understanding of life in a single coherent framework. Sweeping across history and scientific disciplines, they present a unified systemic view that includes and integrates the biological, cognitive, social and ecological dimensions of life, in addition to discussing the implications of that view for our global ecological and economic crises.
