Humanity’s inventive function in the residing development of nature

• Explores very important medical discoveries that display the self-organizing intelligence on the center of nature

• Examines the assumption of a dwelling cosmos from its roots within the earliest cultures, to its eclipse throughout the clinical Revolution, to its go back this day

For millennia the realm was once visible as an artistic, interconnected internet of lifestyles, consistently growing to be, constructing, and restoring itself. yet with the coming of the clinical Revolution within the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the realm used to be considered as a dull, clock­like mechanism, sure by way of the legislation of classical physics. Intelligence used to be a trait ascribed exclusively to people, and hence humanity was once seen as enhanced to and become independent from nature. this day new medical discoveries are reviving the traditional philosophy of a dwelling, interconnected cosmos, and humanity is studying from and participating with nature’s intelligence in new, life-enhancing methods, from ecological layout to biomimicry.

Drawing upon crucial clinical discoveries of contemporary instances, David Fideler explores the self-organizing intelligence on the center of nature and humanity’s position within the cosmic trend. He examines the traditional imaginative and prescient of the residing cosmos from its roots within the “world soul” of the Greeks and the alchemical culture, to its eclipse in the course of the medical Revolution, to its go back this day. He explains how the mechanistic worldview ended in humanity’s profound feel of alienation, for if the universe basically functioned as a computer, there has been now not any room for actual creativity or spontaneity. He exhibits how this isn’t the case and the way, even on the molecular point, traditional platforms interact in self-organization, self-preservation, and artistic challenge fixing, mirroring the traditional thought of an artistic intelligence that exists deep in the center of nature.

Revealing new connections among technological know-how, faith, and tradition, Fideler explores how one can reengage our artistic partnership with nature and new how one can collaborate with nature’s intelligence.
