From Descartes and Newton to Einstein and Bohr, Capra takes us on a journey through the past four centuries of the scientific revolution and leads us to the birth of a new worldview in response to the escalating world crises. He reveals the difficulty in translating abstract ideas to the screen, and how the use of visual metaphor became a powerful tool and symbolized the importance of the ecological dimension. Fritjof Capra, Ph.D., physicist and systems theorist, is a founding director of the Center for Ecoliteracy in Berkeley, California, which promotes ecology and systems thinking in primary and secondary education. He is on the faculty of Schumacher College, an international center for ecological studies in England, and frequently gives management seminars for top executives. Dr. Capra is the author of five international bestsellers, The Tao of Physics (Shambhala 1975), The Turning Point (Simon & Schuster 1982), Uncommon Wisdom (1988), The Web of Life (1996), and The Hidden Connections (Anchor 2004), and The Science of Leonardo (Doubleday 2007).
