Capra presents some interesting concepts here that are definitely thinking outside the box. He shows how everything cannot be explained by analyzing it's parts and that things are more than the sum of their parts. The scientific model may have helped us understand some things in our world but it has its limitations. Capra's discussion of open and closed systems, networks, feedback loops, and cybernetics show the interconnectedness of life. It will force you to think on a different level and look at the bigger picture.
I love when somebody risks to think out of the box in a very accurate, instintive, sincere and, at the same time, scientific way. I love the courage of people like Capra, Goodwin, Sheldrake and others to bring out an original thinking (even if it is not) in relation with the stablished, recognized (by editors and universities (money holders)) and more known theories. Take the time to enjoy this book and your own thinking.
This should be requires reading for anyone studying biology, pharmacy, or psychology. The application of systems theory to biology, as well as application of general semantics, along with brevity and clearness of communication makes this book indispensable in the study of living, and nonliving systems alike.
A better voice. The voice of the narrator sounds like an automated customer service recording. I found this impossible to listen to.
