Product description

Review

Advance Praise for The Science of Leonardo

"Minutely researched, vividly written, and endlessly fascinating, The Science of Leonardo opens up a realm which has never been adequately appreciated. It makes one wonder, as Capra does, whether the history of science might have been quite different had a full publication of Leonardo's notebooks not had to wait until four centuries after his death."
--Dr. Oliver Sacks

“The Science of Leonardo is a fascinating glimpse of the road not taken by Western Science. Capra makes a compelling case that the science of the future may look a lot more like Leonardo's than Bacon's or Descartes -- a science of systems, non-reductive and akin to an art.
--Michael Pollan, author of The Botany of Desire and The Omnivore’s Dilemma.
"A brilliant and sound assessment of Leonardo's approach to science, viewed in the cultural context of his time, and through the development of scientific thought in the succeeding centuries. Both deep and new, it is a bold and successful exploration of the working of Leonardo's mind."

--Carlo Pedretti, Armand Hammer Chair of Leonardo Studies, UCLA

“Fritjof Capra paints a vivid and compelling picture of one of the greatest geniuses in history, Leonardo da Vinci, by skillfully weaving together all the different strands of Leonardo's master works and finally revealing the true power and breathtaking scope of his life. Leonardo himself would have nodded in approval of this book, because for the first time it crystallizes the entire body of his work into a coherent, unified whole.”
--Michio Kaku, Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and bestselling author of HYPERSPACE.

Praise for Tao of Physics

 
"A brilliant best-seller."— New York Magazine
 
"A pioneering book of real value and wide appeal."— Washington Post
 
“I have been reading the book with amazement and the greatest interest, recommending it to everyone I meet. . . .[Capra has] done a magnificent and extremely important job.” —Joseph Campbell
 
Praise for The Web of Life

“[Capra] has reassembled the fragments of modern science into something that at last we can understand . . . a wonderful book we all need to read.” —James Lovelock, author of Healing Gaia
 
“This book, a rare blending of the heart and the head, should be required reading.” —Theodore Roszak, Director, Ecopsychology Institute, California State University, Hayward, and author of The Memoirs of Elizabeth Frankenstein
