Join Fritjof Capra and explore the new systemic conception of life at the forefront of science and its application in economics, management, politics, design, medicine, and law.
“Capra Course is my new online course, based on my textbook The Systems View of Life, coauthored with Pier Luigi Luisi and published by Cambridge University Press. For me, this course is the realization of a dream I have had for many years. I hope that it will serve as a model for similar multidisciplinary courses, to be offered at universities, colleges, and other institutions of learning.”
