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 ecomy - is organised along the same basic patterns and principles: those of the network. However, the new global ecomy differs in important aspects from the networks of life: whereas everything in a living network has a function, globalism igres all that cant give it an immediate profit, creating great armies of the excluded. The global financial network also relies on advanced information techlogies - it is shaped by machines, and the resulting ecomic, social and cultural environment is t life-enhancing but life-degrading, in both a social and an ecological sense. Capra demonstrates conclusively how tightly humans are connected with the fabric of life and makes it clear that it is imperative to organise the world according to a different set of values and beliefs, t only for the well-being of human organisations, but for the survival and sustainability of humanity as a whole.
Capra received his PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Vienna and has done research in high-energy physics at several European and American universities. He has written and lectured extensively about the philosophical implications of modern science and is the author of The Tao of Physics, The Turning Point, Uncommon Wisdom and The Web of Life. Currently Director of the Center for Ecoliteracy in Berkeley, California, he lives in Berkeley with his wife and daughter.
