Leonardo da Vinci: Painter. Drawer. Inventor. Botanist. Aerodynamicist. The list goes on. The mind strains to come up with a term for a man like da Vinci, a man who could do so many things so well. If anyone has invented such a term, if may be Tao of Physics author and scientist Fritjof Capra. This week, he'll be speaking on the topic of his book, Learning from Leonardo. The genius da Vinci, Capra says, developed a uniquely holistic view that combined science, design, and art in ways more mechanistic scientists never really could. The da Vincian understanding of the world, which Capra has studied extensively, is one that he believes to be particularly relevant today, as researchers of all kinds attempt to view the world as an integrated whole. It might be said that, even after generations of scientific advancement, Leonardo still leads.
