    This is the first book to trace the fascinating parallel history of law and science from antiquity to modern times, showing how the two disciplines have always influenced each other - until recently. In the past few years, the scientific paradigm has shifted dramatically, from seeing the natural world as a kind of cosmic machine to understanding it as a network of fluidly interacting communities. But law is stuck in a mechanistic, 17th-century view that the world is made up of discrete individual parts.

    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.
