In trying to express how encounters with a variety of humans fueled the writing of his bestsellers The Tao of Physics and The Turning element, Capra's new publication is alternately superficial and meaty. That he as soon as sat subsequent to Alan Watts at a cocktail party, heard Krishnamurti lecture and exchanged observations with Indira Gandhi is revealing of not anything; nor is the special synopsis of the author's analyzing behavior. extra fascinating are conversations recorded the following with physicists Werner Heisenberg and Geoffrey chunk, psychotherapists Stanislav Grof and R. D. Laing, economists Hazel Henderson and E. F. Schumacher, and with figures akin to platforms theorist Gregory Bateson, holistic melanoma therapist Carl Simonton and feminist Charlene Spretnak. How Capra got here to understand parallels among glossy physics and jap mysticism, then went past this to a platforms perspective embracing ecology and non secular wisdom, is the heady subject matter of this self-preoccupied yet usually stimulating set of talks.
