FRITJOF CAPRA HIDDEN CONNECTIONS PDF

Articulates the relationship between design and emergence in the context of learning organizations. Fascinating text. Fritjof Capra. A fierce attack on globalism - and a manifesto for change - by one of the world's leading scientific writers. Recent scientific discoveries indicate that all life - from the most primitive cells, up to human societies, corporations and nation-states, even the global economy - is organised along the same basic patterns and principles: those of the network. However, the new global economy differs in important aspects from the networks of life: whereas everything in a living network has a function, globalism ignores all that cannot give it an immediate profit, creating great armies of the excluded.

Articulates the relationship between design and emergence in the context of learning organizations. Fascinating text. Fritjof Capra. Fritjof Capra, bestselling author of The Tao of Physics and The Web of Life , here explores another frontier in the human significance of scientific ideas—applying complexity theory to large-scale social interaction.

In the s, complexity theory emerged as a powerful alternative to classic, linear thought. A forerunner of that revolution, Fritjof Capra now continues to expand the scope of that theory by establishing a framework in which we can understand and solve some of the most important issues of our time. Capra posits that in order to sustain life, the principles underlying our social institutions must be consistent with the broader organization of nature.

Discussing pertinent contemporary issues ranging from the controversial practices of the World Trade Organization WTO to the Human Genome Project, he concludes with an authoritative, often provocative plan for designing ecologically sustainable communities and technologies as alternatives to the current economic globalization.

He is a founding director of the Center for Ecoliteracy in Berkeley, California, where he lives. For more information, please go to www.
