The New Physics - Fritjof Capra (1939)

Fritjof Capra  (1939) is a physicist and deep ecologist who was born in Vienna, Austria in 1939. He is the author of several books on the relationship between physics and ecology, including The Tao of Physics , Uncommon Wisdom , and The Web of Life . He received his PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Vienna in 1966. The essay The New Physics deals with a new way of looking at the universe. It says that the universe is not made up of separate things, but is a unified whole. This is similar to the idea of the One in Eastern mysticism . The old physics, on the other hand, says that the universe is made up of separate things that interact with each other. This view is based on the idea of reductionism (A theory that all complex systems can be completely understood in terms of their components), which says that you can understand the whole by understanding the parts. The new physics challenges the idea of reductionism. It says that the whole is more than the sum of its parts
