About

The Truth is the Whole:Scientific Legacy of Richard Levins


A book of scientific writings inspired by Dr. Richard Levins, who predicted ecological decline resulting from reductionist science and who proposed a wholistic approach to scientific research.

Seventeen of his scientific followers who worked and studied with him have authored commemorative chapters celebrating directions in which they are developing his thought.

These seventeen chapters are organized into three sections: the dialectics of doing science, the politics of scientific endeavors, and wholistic methodologies in human ecology research.

Risks and challenges

Maintaining timeliness of content in each of the 17 chapters which were finished in 2016 will involve minor rewriting by original authors and editors. Quickly moving the finished book into publication will require discipline by the editors and coordination with both the contributing authors and the publisher. We are prepared for those challenges.

Finding routes of distribution will continue to challenge everyone involved with the publication, so we anticipate collaboration with the broad community of Levins admirers in distributing the finished product.
