Format: Paperback
'Steering Business Toward Sustainability' is a book of high practical value for leaders and organizations who are conscious of the need for deep ecology and the challenge we presently face to update most of our basic business routines and procedures in order to build sustainable organizations.

Capra’s idea of ecology has developed over many years. It is rooted in the insights he exposed in his previous four books, and thus we can say this present book is solidly grounded in research. In addition, Capra leaves no doubt that it’s not just a technocratic idea, but an intrinsically spiritual concept. He also credits those, religions and peoples, who have practiced ecological thinking long before the birth of the United States of America:
—When the concept of the human spirit is understood as the mode of consciousness in which the individual feels connected to the cosmos as a whole, it becomes clear that ecological awareness is spiritual in its deepest essence. It is therefore not surprising that the emerging new vision of reality, based on deep ecological awareness, is consistent with the so-called perennial philosophy of spiritual traditions, whether we talk about the spirituality of Christian mystics, that of Buddhists, or the philosophy and cosmology underlying the American Indian traditions. /3

Capra reminds us of the fact that when restructuring our economies, we should learn from nature, instead of feeling superior over nature. Ecoliteracy is one of the notions Capra is currently lecturing about, and Gunter Pauli, the co-editor of this reader is one of Capra’s truest collaborators, himself an authority on ecology in Germany.
