The Dynamic Heart and Circulation, edited by Craig HoldregeWaldorf Publications
Doctors, scientists, and teachers present a dynamic picture of the circulatory system that give perspective to the prevailing mechanistic ideas that dominate science and medicine today. People today are usually taught that the heart is only a pump. This book transcends this narrow view and restores life to our understanding of the heart and circulation.These essays, inspired by a Goethean view of nature and science, attempt to portray rather than explain. Some give precise descriptions of physiological processes, while others portray the heart and circulation within broader developmental and evolutionary contexts.
