Chaos is part of a broad scientific revolution that is uncovering the role of interdependence in shaping the world at all levels from the molecular to the societal. But this science is part of a yet larger cultural revolution, the emergence of a vision of the world as a deeply interdependent evolving ecology. In this powerful book, Sally Goerner strives to make the broader revolution, science and sociology, understandable. She provides a concrete and coherent picture of the science from chaos and self-organization theory to Gaia and the New Biology and then ties it to visions of ecology and evolution in the broader human realm. The result is a breathtaking birds-eye view of a new and profound form of ecological thinking emerging at once from the head and heart of our culture.
