ABSTRACT
The article discusses the contents of the book "Presence: Human Purpose and the Field of the Future," by Peter M. Senge, C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, and Betty Sue Flowers. The book offers a theory of profound change that is both radical and simple, based first on understanding the nature of the whole social system and how various parts are interlinked to the complete system. Unlike machines, living systems, such as human body or a tree, create themselves. Living things are not mere assemblages of their parts but are continually growing and changing along with their elements.
