INTRODUCTION: [to index] ; [next]
"Useful Tools and Important Links page" (UTIL page):
Here are some valuable links that I have found or been referred to during the creation of my book and ecotaoism web page. I have put relevant keywords alongside the sites, so a quick way to find what you need is to use your browser to search for a word in the site (e.g. Netscape - Edit - Find in Page . . .). The list will never be complete, but many of these links in turn link to many more. The emphasis of this selection is ecological and biological. I have put more links to other URL in the glossary. In the glossary , [1:e.g..] refers to links within the same page, [2:example] refers to links in another file in my web page [2: http://www.ecotao.com/] and [3:] links to another URL or web page. In the glossary further important sources can be found under philosophy , dictionary , encyclopaedia , E-text listings , glossary and reference sources .
If you want to have all these links in a single web page click here.

Naturally, the subject of holism has many other perspectives, developed by people in other fields. These need to be referred to for further investigation.
[1] The DuVersity, Inc.: "The DuVersity is a research and educational enterprise seeking the integration of diverse perspectives or frames of thinking, and the discovery of new emergent principles of self-organization or evolutionary potential in contemporary life. It supposes that there are diverse modes even of 'holistic' thinking that they can never reduce to a single principle or theory."
[2] Biospherics is defined as follows: "Biospheres, as a class of objects to study, are defined as an energetically open, materially closed life systems, natural or artificial, capable of long term self-renewal under the proper conditions. [The Earth's biosphere is over three and a half billion years old, a trillion tons in weight, with over 10,000,000 species and certainly to a great extent self-organizing.]"
