    DescriptionThe vitality and accessibility of Fritjof Capra's ideas have made him one of the most eloquent spokespersons for the latest findings emerging at the frontiers of scientific, social and philosophical thought. In his previous bestsellers, he juxtaposed physics and mysticism to define a new vision of reality. Now Dr. Capra takes another giant step, setting forth an emerging theory of living systems, one that offers a unified view of mind, matter and life. During the past twenty-five years, scientists have challenged conventional views of evolution and the organization of living systems, and have developed revolutionary new theories that have profound implications not only for science and philosophy -- but also for business, politics, health care, education and everyday life. Fritjof Capra has been at the forefront of this revolution and now, in The Web of Life, he offers a brilliant synthesis of these exciting breakthroughs. The survival of humanity depends on our developing a new understanding of the principles of organization of ecosystems, and using those principles to create sustainable human communities in which we can satisfy our needs and aspirations without diminishing the chances of future generations. This remarkable program points the way to that understanding.
