The Hidden Connections

Articulates the relationship between design and emergence in the context of learning organizations. Fascinating text. Fritjof Capra. A fierce attack on globalism - and a manifesto for change - by one of the world's leading scientific writers. Recent scientific discoveries indicate that all life - from the most primitive cells, up to human societies, corporations and nation-states, even the global economy - is organised along the same basic patterns and principles: those of the network. However, the new global economy differs in important aspects from the networks of life: whereas everything in a living network has a function, globalism ignores all that cannot give it an immediate profit, creating great armies of the excluded. The global financial network also relies on advanced information technologies - it is shaped by machines, and the resulting economic, social and cultural environment is not life-enhancing but life-degrading, in both a social and an ecological sense.

Sure, we all want to save the planet. But there are a lot of things I haven't been getting lately - such as, why are there big eco-riots every time there is an international trade summit in town? Why get so worked up over meetings of faceless suits? And what about the hysteria over genetically modified food? Well, here is a book to bring you up sharp on that. Hidden Connections offers a penetrating analysis of what it means to be a system - an ecological system, a social system, an economic system, any kind of system.
