He studied the flight patterns of birds to create some of the first human flying machines; designed military weapons and defenses; studied optics, hydraulics, and the workings of the human circulatory system; and created designs for rebuilding Milan, employing principles still used by city planners today. However, for those who are mathematically inclined, Capra provides an appendix going further into various mathematical concepts.

A Ciência de Leonardo da Vinci: Um Mergulho Profundo na Mente do Grande Gênio da Renascença

The biography section is short, and better done elsewhere. I decided I wanted to know if there were more correlations between Leonardo’s work and the teachings in my training. And oddly, this is where the book hits it’s only snag. Capra does a good job of pulling together what is known without straying too far into conjecture. He began with Aristotle and in many ways developed the scientific method.

Capra takes more of a systems dynamics approach to the science, basing it more on what was known during Da Vinci’s time, rather than examining the physics from a Newtonian perspective because that is not the type of physics background with which he would have approached these questions, though it is often how it has been interpretted since his notebooks were discovered.

A lovely and well-noted book promoting DaVinci’s extensive investigations into multiple branches of science.

Leonardo was hundreds of years ahead of his time in many of his scientific observations. And because he was an honest researcher who wanted to learn about everything he went from being ‘unlearned’ he never got a formal education to creating studies of anatomy, fluid dynamics, mechanical engineering, painting, sculpting, botany, aerodynamics! One interesting bit of minutia to note: I’d now like to learn more of Galileo and Pythagorus, of course. I learned so much about the great Leonardo.


What can I say, Leonardo da Vinci was wicked smart.

The Science of Leonardo: Inside the Mind of the Great Genius of the Renaissance

Really, enough cannot be said about his depth of curiosity and observation. What viencia tragically didn’t understand about science was that in order to grow it has to be shared.

This book is about a man who could have easily been the father of modern science, if only he’d published and dispersed his observations during his lifetime. One of the most frittjof points was Leonardo’s use of the word “spiritual. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

I decided to read this book because Leonardo’s drawing the Vitruvian Man has been mentioned in my Feldenkrais training many times.

I have not studied Leonardo directly, and so appreciated the inclusion of such biographical detail. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. A great read for any who are interested in the ancestors o Fascinating read! I realise that there are literally thousands of books written on Leonardo, from diverse perspectives.

The Science of Leonardo: Inside the Mind of the Great Genius of the Renaissance by Fritjof Capra

I like that Capra made an effort to place da Vinci and his research in his own time and place for the most part, I didn’t like Capra’s attempts to connect da Vinci to modern ideas like deep ecology or James Lovelock’s Gaia hypothesis. The science section shows what a genius Da Vinci really was, but at times the author’s love of Da Vinci seems to overwhelm any objectivity. The book starts out with a biography of his life, exploring some of his main interests, and his accomplishments in painting, military engineering, and theatre.


Then in the second half, really getting into the meat of it, Leonardo’s accomplishments in different ciencoa of the sciences. Mariano rated it liked it Feb 25, Really, enough cannot be said about his dep Fantastic, fantastic book.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Thanks for telling us about the problem. My bad, not the books. I want to go back to Italy! The list goes on and on Rated three stars for “Ok frltjof you have nothing better to do with your time. He is indeed one of the most genius but under-celebrated figure of humankind. Not the case as Moshe passed before this was published, which may make it even more incredible.

Leonardo Da Vinci is what God would be if he had a human form. What he tragically didn’t understand about scie In order to be an artist, you need to observe carefully.

I found this book rather interesting. Very interesting, the first half is a brief biography and the second half is about him as a scientist.
