Over the last 30 years, physicist and systems-theorist Fritjof Capra has developed a conceptual framework that integrates what he calls the four dimensions of life: the biological, the cognitive, the social and the ecological. He joins us to talk about his latest book “The Systems View of Life: A Unifying Vision,” and how his framework can help us address today’s most pressing environmental, social and economic problems.


Fritjof Capra, founding director of the Center for Ecoliteracy, fellow of Schumacher College, an international center for ecological studies in the UK, and author of books including "The Tao of Physics"
