An encounter between physicist and philosopher Fritjof Capra and plant neurobiologist Stefano Mancuso resulted in this short Discorso sulle erbe.
Using Leonardo da Vinci's insights into nature as a starting point, the book offers interesting reflections on the relationship between our lives and those of plants.
Mancuso and Capra illustrate in very clear terms that the universe is a dense network of relationships, and that the planet is a self-regulating, living system.
Plants are the most extraordinary model of network that can be studied, because, unlike animals, the plant world has not concentrated its functions in particular organs, but has distributed its essential vital functions, relying on a diffuse pattern.
The two scientists demonstrate in a very accessible language that a diffuse organisation, as found in plants, is more effective in solving the problems of communities of individuals.
