From Publishers Weekly

In trying to convey how encounters with a number 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 particular synopsis of the author's examining conduct. extra attention-grabbing are conversations recorded right here with physicists Werner Heisenberg and Geoffrey bite, psychotherapists Stanislav Grof and R. D. Laing, economists Hazel Henderson and E. F. Schumacher, and with figures similar to platforms theorist Gregory Bateson, holistic melanoma therapist Carl Simonton and feminist Charlene Spretnak. How Capra got here to understand parallels among smooth physics and japanese mysticism, then went past this to a platforms standpoint embracing ecology and non secular wisdom, is the heady subject matter of this self-preoccupied yet frequently stimulating set of talks.
