In the association of the bee and the flower is a very advanced reflection of the process of evolution through natural selection. Nature's Holism explores the coevolution of long-associated species arriving at a holistic
view of nature where the compatibility between species within an ecosystem is significant. Charles Darwin observed this interdependence and
commented, ". . .the structure of every organic being is related, in the most essential yet often hidden manner, to that of all other organic beings, with which it comes into competition for food or residence, or from which it has to escape, or on which it preys." While dealing with holism in nature, the author explores related topics, such as human evolution, genetics, and various perspectives, such as that of the philosophers Thomas Hobbes and Immanuel Kant,General Jan Smuts's work on holism and evolution, the Gaia Hypothesis of James Lovelock, chaos and complexity theory and the classic biological model, the Lotka-Volterra model. He also briefly touches upon religious views and the Chinese yin and yang principle.
