SAN JOSE, CA – Did you know Leonardo da Vinci was a master at connecting the dots? Or that he was one of the first theoretical botanists? And a geologist?

On Sunday, November 10, The Tech Museum of Innovation hosts Fritjof Capra, Ph.D, physicist and systems theorist, when he presents his latest book, Learning from Leonardo: Decoding the Notebooks of a Genius.

“The image that emerges from my account is, in contemporary scientific terms, one of Leonardo as a systemic thinker, ecologist, and complexity theorist; a scientist and artist with a deep reverence for all life, and as a man with a strong desire to work for the benefit of humanity,” says Capra of Leonardo.

Capra will also attend The Tech Awards Gala on November 14, 2013 where 10 international laureates who are using technology to benefit humanity will be honored by the museum.


WHAT: Fritjof Capra in conversation with Angie Coiro

WHEN: 4 to 6:00 p.m., Sunday, November 10, 2013
