Capra, Turning Point. Science, Society, and the Rising Culture

Capra, Fritjof.

Turning Point. Science, Society, and the Rising Culture.

First Edition. New York, Simon and Schuster, 1982. 24cm x 16cm. 464 pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket in protective collector’s mylar. Very good+ condition with foxing to pastedowns and the edges, as well as a small dampstain to top edge. Internally fine.

In his widely acclaimed best seller “The Tao of Physics”, Capra challenged much of conventional wisdom by demanstrating the striking parallels between ancient mystical traditions and the discoveries of twentieth-century physics. Now, in “The Turning Point,” the University of California physicist expands his focus. He shows how the revolution in modern physics foreshadows an emminent revolution in all the sciences and a transformation of our world view and values.

In a stunning critique of Cartesian thinking in biology, medicine, psychology and economics, Capra explains how our reductionist approach to systemic problems has brought us to a perilous impasse. But Capra sees a future that works, and he presents a new vision of reality involving fundamental changes in our thoughts, perception and values. This new vision includes new concepts of space, time and matter developed in subatomic physics; the emerging systems view of life, mind, consciousness and evolution; the corresponding holistic approach to health and healing; the integration of Western and Eastern approaches to psychology and psychotherapy; a new conceptual framework for economics and technology; and an ecological and feminist perspective.
