The Turning Point (book)
The first edition
|Published||1982 (Bantam Books)|
Capra begins by outlining and tracing the history of science and economics, highlighting flaws in the Cartesian, Newtonian, and reductionist paradigms which have come to light in the context of more contemporary empirical understanding of the physical sciences. He narrates how such viewpoints have grown inadequate to guide human behavior and policy with regard to modern technology and ecology, 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.
