“At the forefront of contemporary science, the universe is no longer seen as a machine composed of elementary building blocks. We have discovered that the material world is a network of inseparable patterns of relationships; that the planet as a whole is a living, self-regulating system.” In this article from Resurgence & Ecologist magazine, Fritjof Capra gives an overview of “systemic thinking,” the scientific view of the world as network, instead of machine. Rather than looking at fixed parts and components, the focus is on the living world’s relationships, patterns, and context.
