Riassunto: We are in the midst of the most dramatic cultural shift in three hundred years. THis book explains why great change is simmering in all facets of our civilization, from economics and politics to science and spirituality. Our inherited concept of a mechanistic world -- a clockwork universe -- is giving way and the vision of a web world is rising to take its place. Goernerexplains the new and profound rethinking emerging across modern science, from anthropology to physics. The author then weaves current realities into these new scientific insights to create a fascinating vision of history and science progressing through upheavals and rebirths to the present day. Humankind too, is ound into the patterns and processes of this web world, and Goerner describes the already visible signs of an emerging Integral Society in which head, heart and soul need no longer be at odds. Integral culture has the potential to build a more sustainable and peaceful civilization. Yet, all great change comes as a result of pressure and the author warns that our present social and economic systems are already becoming unstable. If we do not integrate the core lessons of the web world -- learning, collaboration, and intricacy -- into our ways of life, we face the specter of collapse.
About the Author: Dr Sally Goerner is based in Research Triangle, North Carolina. She has advanced degrees in computer science, psychology and nonlinear dynamics, and now lectures, writes and provides consultancy advice to international organisations.
