Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the Industrial Revolution, the peoples from Western civilizations had developed a more mechanistic point of view of the world. As our knowledge of physics and chemistry grew; and with the advent of the steam engine, we started to see the universe and all life in it as a big mechanical machine constructed from chemical elements. Our knowledge has kept on increasing with discoveries about electricity, electronics, information and communication science, computer science and nanotechnology, and especially quantum theory, and holography. We had a whole paradigm shift, and have since developed tools like general systems theory, cybernetics, and chaos theory that are directing our approach to these new, technological developments. The mechanistic worldview of Isaac Newton and Rene Descartes has become utterly, untenable and we have to reconsider our world perspective and probably develop a more holistic view of our world and belief systems.
