Download Verborgene Zusammenhänge by Fritjof Capra PDF

By Fritjof Capra

Fritjof Capra, der bereits mit seinen Weltbestsellern Wendezeit und Das Tao der Physik den Blick seiner Leser für Verborgene Zusammenhänge geschärft hat, versucht mit seinem neuen Buch ein weiteres Mal, uns die Augen für die wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse zu öffnen, die nach seinem Dafürhalten den Schlüssel für eine erfolgreiche gesellschaftliche Entwicklung bereithalten.

Auch diesmal hat er seinen Parcours wieder sehr weit abgesteckt und breitet ein weiteres Mal eine unendliche Fülle an fabric vor uns aus. Auf dem neuesten Stand der wissenschaftlichen Forschung der unterschiedlichsten Disziplinen -- freilich nicht immer einverstanden mit dem in diesen Wissenschaften vertretenen Mainstream -- zeigt der Physiker überraschende Parallelen und Zusammenhänge auf, die die Quintessenz seines Denkens belegen: dass nämlich alles mit allem auf irgendeine, aber bestimmte und bestimmbare Weise zusammenhängt. Verbunden ist dies alles mit der Aufforderung, guy möge in Zukunft endlich die gebührende Aufmerksamkeit auf diese Zusammenhänge -- die "Netzwerke des Lebens" -- richten. Diese nämlich gelte es zu beachten, wenn wir unser Überleben sichern und unsere Zukunft im Einklang mit der Natur gestalten wollten.

Dies alles hat uns Capra bereits in Wendezeit als das Fazit der modernen Physik präsentiert. Doch wer Wendezeit nicht gelesen hat, der braucht diese Lektüre nun nicht mehr nachzuholen. Alles was once guy dort hätte lernen können, ist im neuen Capra ebenso enthalten, wie die Quintessenz auch der nachfolgenden Bücher. Beachtung verdient hat aber natürlich auch das eher wenige Neue: Im zweiten Teil des Buches nämlich, in dem sich der Autor den "Herausforderungen des 21. Jahrhunderts" stellt, streitet er für eine Neuausrichtung unserer wirtschaftlichen Handlungsmaximen mit dem Ziel, dass das Wirtschaftssystem das Leben verbessert, statt es zu vernichten. Und er tut dies mit und gegen Vokabeln, die zur Wendezeit noch kaum im Umlauf waren. "Shareholder price" ist so ein Begriff, den Capra als Ausdruck eines Verständnisses vom Unternehmen als einer Maschine brandmarkt. Tatsächlich aber müsse guy das Unternehmen als "Lebewesen" begreifen, used to be notwendig andere Werte, Zyklen und Ziele hat als eine Maschine. Dem magazine guy nicht widersprechen. --Alexander Dohnberg
