no one should come to this table who expects to go away hungry.—Norman Cousins, author of Anatomy of an IllnessThe vitality and accessibility of Fritjof Capras ideas have made him one of the most eloquent spokespersons of the new consciousness now emerging in scientific, social, and philosophical thought.

In his international bestsellers The Tao of Physics and The Turning Point, he juxtaposed physics and mysticism to define a new vision of reality Now, in Uncommon Wisdom, Capra charts his own intellectual odyssey through lively discussions with many of this centurys most influential thinkers, such asWerner Heisenberg, R.

D. Laing, Gregory Bateson, Hazel Henderson, Alan Watts, and Krishnamurti, and others on the leading edge of such diverse fields as family therapy physics, psychiatry futurism, medicine, anthropology and oncology.Controversial, often irreverent, always enlightening, these conversations transcend the narrow confines of current academic thought and reach into uncharted territory often going beyond the limits of science as they are currently understood. In Uncommon Wisdom Capra has created a remarkable record of the thoughts, dreams, and speculations of the dynamic men and women whose uncommon wisdom is changing the way we think about our world, our future, and ourselves.Fritjof Capra received his Ph.D.

from the University of Vienna and has done research in high-energy physics at several European and American universities.

He is the author of The Tao of Physics and The Turning Point.
