“The central question of our time is “How can we live divided no more?” This wonderful book provides the science, the philosophy and the business practices that lead us to an answer. The Robinsons present the concepts and thinkers who first awakened a new sense of excitement and possibility in me many years ago. What a gift to have these monumental, mind-changing ideas woven together skilfully in one book. If you absorb their perspectives, you can’t help but have your mind changed—for the benefit of both people and planet.”

“The way we engage with reality is foundational to solving the flaws in our prevailing worldview. Holonomics brings well researched and practical attention to this root cause and so acts as a powerful aid in helping formulate our new philosophical, scientific and economic paradigm. As recognised experts in their respective fields, both Simon and Maria powerfully combine their wisdom, teachings from Schumacher College and expertise from the sustainability arena into this timely, radical and deeply insightful book.”
