The Gary Null Show – 11.10.15

Dr. Fritjof Capra is a physicist and systems theorist, an educator and activist and author of many international bestselling works dealing with emerging scientific principles that can alter our inadequate and dsfunctional worldviews and the ethics of society. Many listeners may remember his book The Tao of Physics, one of the most important books of the 1970s to introduce the properties of physics and its synergy with spiritual insights and teachings in Eastern mysticism. For the past 40 years Dr Capra has been researching the shift of worldviews and paradigms and how this might lead to a new vision of reality that would bring forth a cultural transformation. He is currently the founding director of the Center for Ecoliteracy in Berkeley California, a fellow at Schumacher College in the UK, and serves on the Council of the Earth Charter Initiative. He holds degrees in theoretical physics from the University of Vienna and has worked on high energy physics at the Universities of Paris, London, Stanford and at the Lawrence Livermore Labs at the Berkeley. His most recent book “The Systems View of Life: A Unifying Vision”is perhaps the most comprehensive textbook to understanding how the emerging discipline of systems theory can inform and recreate our perceptions and actions in just about everything in our lives.
