Until recently, our view of the physical universe had been formed, for centuries, by the mechanistic thinking of Descartes and Newton. New scientific concepts have overturned this world view, replacing it with a more holistic and ecological one that has afforded us deep insights into the nature of matter and its relation to the human mind. In the Tao of Physics, Fritjof Capra showed how we might merge these new scientific ideas with the philosophies of mystics of all ages and traditions. In this book, he takes his ideas further, extending his systems-based approach to include important areas of contemporary life including medicine, psychology, economics, political science and ecology. We are at a turning point in all areas of our culture and, in this groundbreaking book, Capra reveals how we can effect a cultural revolution that will reflect the harmonious interrelatedness we observe in nature.
