Leonardo e la botanica. Un discorso sulla scienza delle qualità.

Leonardo Copertina

In this book, Fritjof Capra masterfully illustrates the botanical studies carried out by Leonardo over the course of his lifetime, demonstrating how his drawings have a solid “scientific” basis, capable of accurately representing a constantly evolving reality. From the observations to the careful illustrations of plants in his works, Leonardo provides fascinating insights to be reanalysed today from the perspective of the “science of details” which allowed the Renaissance genius to capture nature during its process of development.

He serves on the faculty of Schumacher College, an international center for ecological studies in the United Kingdom, and in the council of Earth Charter International.
