Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book brings important new dimensions to the interface between contemporary Western science and ancient Eastern wisdom. Here for the first time the concepts and insights of general systems theory are presented in tandem with those of the Buddha. The interdependence of all beings provides the context for clarifying both the role of meditative practice and guidelines for effective action on behalf of the common good.

Book News Annotation:

Macy engages in a mutual hermeneutic between early Buddhism and contemporary systems theory, the two together constituting a of natural systems fundamental causal interconnectedness of all phenomena.
