The Turning Point: Science, Society, and the Rising Culture is a 1982 book by Fritjof Capra written to explain perceived scientific and economic crises.
It begins by outlining and tracing the history of science and economics, highlighting the flaws in the Cartesian, Newtonian, and reductionist paradigms. It narrates how such viewpoints have grown inadequate for modern technology and ecology needs, then argues that science needs to develop the concepts and insights of holism and systems theory to solve society's complex problems.
The 1990 film, Mindwalk, is based on the book.
