Om bogen

Bogen bygger på psykologen og filosoffen Donald T. Campbells tanker. Hans grundlæggende idé er, at hvis vekselvirkning på mikroniveau kan påvirke makroniveauet, kan makroniveauet så ikke virke tilbage på mikroniveauet? Dette spørgsmål har inden for forskellige fagområder ført til spørgsmål som: Kan cellen som system reorganisere sin egen biokemiske proces? Findes der psykosomatiske sygdomme?
