Fritjof Capra and guests “The Science of Leonardo da Vinci”

Welcome to an open afternoon with Fritjof Capra and guests titled “The Science of Leonardo da Vinci”

Last year it was 500 years since the Renaissance man and universal genius Leonardo da Vinci died. Leonardo is perhaps best known as an artist, but he also made great contributions as architect, engineer, inventor, mathematician, philosopher, and scientist. Fritjof Capra has written two books on the scientific writings and drawings of Leonardo, which reveals a groundbreaking science of living forms, which can be seen as a forerunner of today’s complexity and systems theories. It is a science that honors and respects the unity of life, recognizes the fundamental interdependence of all natural phenomena, and reconnects us with the living Earth. At this seminar, Fritjof Capra will present these ideas, together with some broader perspectives on Leonardo and the Renaissance, given by Uno Svedin, Nina Burton, and Alf Linderman.
