"Capra shows how the revolution in modern physics foreshadows an imminent revolution in all the sciences and a transformation of our world view and values. In a stunning critique of Cartesian thinking in biology, medicine, psychology, and economics, Capra explains how our reductionist approach to systemic problems has brought us to a perilous impasse. But Capra sees a future that works, and he presents a new vision of reality involvng fundamental changes in our thoughts, perceptions, and values. " Bibliography. Index. .
