Fritjof Capra - Learning From Leonardo


Leonardo da Vinci – a brilliant artist, scientist, mathematician, inventor, and even musician. The quintessential Renaissance man, but also, according to Fritjof Capra, profoundly modern. In Learning from Leonardo ($29.95), Capra outlines seven key characteristics of da Vinci’s genius and more than forty innovations Leonardo made that weren’t rediscovered until centuries later. Capra provides an overview of Leonardo’s massive contributions to a variety of fields, from aerodynamics to embryology, and illuminates da Vinci’s vibrant, unified perception of the world. This book illustrates Leonardo’s holistic approach, and provides profound insights into how best to address the challenges of the 21st century.

Fritjof Capra, PhD, physicist and systems theorist, is a founding director of the center for Ecoliteracy in Berkeley, California, which advances sustainability schooling. Dr. Capra is on the faculty of the Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program of the University of California, Berkeley, and also teaches at Schumacher College, an international center for ecological studies in England.
