Description du produit

Revue de presse

'Partly an enjoyable survey of exciting new developments in systems biology, valuable to any student of biology or science, and partly a bold blueprint for how we might preserve our future on Earth.' New Scientist

'A magisterial study of the scientific basis for an integrated worldview grounded in the wholeness that generations of one-eyed reductionists could not see. The authors succeed brilliantly!' David W. Orr, Oberlin College

'… gives us a sound synthesis of the best science and theory on the connectedness of all living things, the dynamics of emergence and self-organization as conceived by Francisco Varela. This volume offers a profound framework for understanding our place on the planet, for better or worse. And if we apply the insights offered by Capra and Luisi, it will be for the better … should be required reading for today's young, tomorrow's leaders, and anyone who cares about life on this planet.' Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and Ecological Intelligence

'What is life? What is a human being? How can new discoveries about nature and ourselves keep us from becoming the first self-endangered species? Capra and Luisi's dazzling synthesis explains how moving beyond mechanistic, linear, reductionist habits is revealing startling new answers to perennial questions of philosophy and practice. Sir Francis Bacon's goal of 'the enlargement of the bounds of Human Empire, to the effecting of all things possible' has put humanity in serious trouble. But today, rebuilding our thinking, language, and actions around Darwin, not Descartes, and around modern biology, not outmoded physics, creates rich new options. Driven by the co-evolution of business with civil society, these can build a fairer, healthier, cooler, safer world. The Systems View of Life is a lucid, wide-ranging guide to living maturely, kindly, and durably with each other and with other beings on the only home we have.' Amory B. Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute

'… this book feels like a Rosetta stone for me, unlocking connections and roots of a panoply of different ideas and concepts. It starts walking us through the history of science – and how scientific models influenced most aspect of cultures … This book pulls the big changes together and integrates them, across disciplines into a glorious big picture, for each field … As I was reading the portion of the book covering the history of systems thinking … I realized that I was suddenly feeling very excited, like I was in a movie, sitting on the edge of my seat … This is what a great writer and a great book are supposed to do … It has had a huge impact on my way of thinking about so many things. It doesn't matter what your area of work or interest is. This book is essential reading to face the future with eyes wide open.' Rob Kall, OpEdNews.com

'… a valuable overview of the discipline.' Stephen Lewis, The Biologist

Présentation de l'éditeur

Over the past thirty years, a new systemic conception of life has emerged at the forefront of science. New emphasis has been given to complexity, networks, and patterns of organisation, leading to a novel kind of 'systemic' thinking. This volume integrates the ideas, models, and theories underlying the systems view of life into a single coherent framework. Taking a broad sweep through history and across scientific disciplines, the authors examine the appearance of key concepts such as autopoiesis, dissipative structures, social networks, and a systemic understanding of evolution. The implications of the systems view of life for health care, management, and our global ecological and economic crises are also discussed. Written primarily for undergraduates, it is also essential reading for graduate students and researchers interested in understanding the new systemic conception of life and its implications for a broad range of professions - from economics and politics to medicine, psychology and law.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Intellectual journey 15 août 2015
Par jenergy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Outstanding intellectual journey of science, history and philosophy to develop the systems view of life. While the book is categorized as science oriented given the authors' physics and cell biology backgrounds, the Systems View of Life is so much more than science. The underlying theories apply to all aspects of planetary activity such as law, economics, society, government etc. The essence of the book is the disconnect between the non-linear planetary processes based on relationships, forms, feed back loops and our linear models that stem from a mechanistic and material world view. This disconnect explains why humanity faces so many ecological and social problems. We see ourselves as independent from nature and act accordingly, yet we have created a economic system that is destroying the life giving features of this planet. The book provides the historical development from Newtonian mechanistic thinking to an evolving holistic approach and how that transition occurred. Even if you don't have a science background the authors present the material in a coherent way. This is a must read if you are interested in complexity and systems theory or if you are looking at issues of sustainability.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fascinating introduction to approaches we'll all be using in the future to address societies biggest challenges. 8 janvier 2017
Par V. G. McGowan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Very happy to see this book in a textbook format so that the knowledge is passed along as a new way of approaching science to solve societal problems. You'll find more depth in Professor Capra's other works on the subjects introduced and covered here. It sets up a nice situation where the reader is introduced to a number of unique ways of seeing topics that most do not know or appreciate yet. This will be the thinking of the future. I only hope it comes sooner rather than later. Get the book. If you're a professor - use the book for your class. Spread the messages it contains and we'll have more luck solving our problems moving forward.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very profound book for the enlightened reader looking for a fresh perspective 31 décembre 2016
Par Rass - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I cannot possibly recommend this book enough. We live in a time where all current systems of human thought from physics to politics are dominated by a set of underlying assumptions, that are mostly outdated and no longer work in a very different world that is more interdependent and connected than ever before in human history.

It is in this context that Fritjof Capra presents many ideas and concepts involved in systems thinking, involving a holistic approach that recognizes the organic unity and interconnection between all things. It calls for a complete paradigm shift in our understanding of reality that takes entire systems in account, rather than only considering their component parts.

A must read for anyone that is increasing confused by all of the seeming chaos and madness present in today's world.

Par Kenny B. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
In my opinion, there should be a course that is taught along with this textbook that is prerequisite for every undergraduate degree. The book does a good job of explaining interdependent origination from an interdisciplinary scientific point of view. We desperately need to overcome our mechanistic, binary view of the world and our lived sense of separateness from it in order to ensure the longevity of our, along with every other, species on this planet. Education and inner reflection are keys to overcome the maelstrom of conditioning that has been imposed upon us all. One can only hope that the modern era zeitgeist which has prevailed since the Industrial Revolution will give way to a more holistic/systemic/cooperative way of life. In all probability, the future generations of all sentient beings are dependent upon it. As a fitting conclusion to the book, Capra and Luisi offer us an inspiring quote from Vaclav Havel:

"The kind of hope that I often think about...I understand above all as a state of mind, not a state of the world. Either we have hope within us or we don't; it is a dimension of the soul, and it's not essentially dependent on some particular observation of the world or estimate of the situation...[Hope] is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The authors do an excellent job in looking at LIFE as a total system 29 avril 2017

The authors do an excellent job in looking at LIFE as a total system. I especially liked that Spirituality is not the problem, it is organized Religion that creates a problems and conflicts with Science.
