Capra Course (Fall 2024)

Registration for the Fall 2024 course is now open.

Scholarship applications for the Fall 2024 course are now open.

Capra Course is my new online course, based on my textbook The Systems View of Life, coauthored with Pier Luigi Luisi and published by Cambridge University Press. This course is the realization of a dream I have had for many years. I hope that it will serve as a model for similar multidisciplinary courses at universities, colleges, and other institutions of learning.

~ Fritjof Capra



This course consists of twelve pre-recorded lectures, with one lecture being posted each week. Each lecture is about 40 minutes long. The course includes exclusive online discussion forums in which Fritjof will participate.


All students will be able to fully interact both with Fritjof and other participants and share materials via the course forums. The number of students will be strictly limited to 200, to allow high-quality interactions in our discussions.


The fees for the course are structured in three tiers, a structure that has been created in order to allow as many people to participate as possible, independent of their current incomes.

A small number of scholarships are also available.
