Summary:

In the first of this three-part series, Carol Spalding Miner interviews two Futurists who agree that the world can be seen as a living system rather than a mechanical system. Although these futurists have different focuses - Elisabet Sahtourist is a biologist and Hazel Henderson is a green economist - they share similar viewpoints on the environment and how important it is for us to protect it. Sahtouris discusses her book Gaia: The Human Journey from Chaos to Cosmos and its framing of the universe as natural rather than mechanical.  Henderson argues that economics should be taught with this natural framing.
