Capra Course

*disponível apenas em Inglês

During the last three decades, a new conception of life has emerged at the forefront of science. It is a unified view that integrates life’s biological, cognitive, social and ecological dimensions. At the very core of this new understanding of life we find a profound change of metaphors: from seeing the world as a machine to understanding it as a network.


This new science of life is now being developed by outstanding researchers and their teams around the world. Fritjof Capra has integrated their concepts and ideas into a single coherent framework — a unique synthesis, which is teaching for the first time in his online course Capra Course.


Fritjof calls the new conception of life a “systems view” because it involves a new kind of thinking — thinking in terms of relationships, patterns, and context. In science, this way of thinking is known as “systems thinking,” or “systemic thinking,” because it is crucial to understanding living systems of any kind — living organisms, social systems, or ecosystems. Systems thinking makes us aware of the fact that the major problems of our time — energy, economics, climate change, inequality —are all interconnected and interdependent. They are systemic problems that require corresponding systemic solutions.


Capra Course provides people with the conceptual tools to understand the nature of our systemic problems and to recognize the systemic solutions that are being developed by individuals and organizations around the world. The course allows people around the world to join Fritjof as he takes them through twelve different lectures over the course of twelve weeks. Each lecture will also contain a lecture overview, as well as supplementary reading and viewing materials as well as an on-line forum allowing participants to discuss each lecture in depth.
