Our understanding of life on earth is always developing. In this age of genetics and microbiology, Andreas Suchantke brings a lifetime of holistic biological research to the question of the development and evolution of plants and animals. Following Goethe's participatory method, and drawing on his observations from a number of continents, Suchantke presents evolution as an integrated dynamic process that unfolds on a far more fundamental level than Darwin's natural selection. Beautifully illustrated through the author's own drawings and colour photographs, this masterly work offers a rich, dynamic and deeply meaningful understanding of organic life.

'This remarkable, exquisitely illustrated study of the plant and animals worlds contains many fascinating bits of information ... But the book is not just a catalogue of interesting facts. It is an invitation to view the world of nature -- plants, animals, and the human being -- in a new way. Metamorphosis is an engaging, thought-provoking synthesis of science, art, and philosophy that will appeal to any reader of high school age and above -- student, teacher, parent, scientist, artist -- anyone with an interest in the world in which we live ... Metamorphosis is a challenging book ... for all enquiring minds, the book is a valuable scientific and artistic resource and an invitation to a new level of respect and love for and wonder at the world of nature.' -- Ronald Koetzsch, Renewal: A Journal for Waldorf Education, Spring/Summer 2010 'Metamorphosis is a truly exceptional and beautiful book which imparts extraordinary insight into the mysterious but highly ordered processes of evolution.' -- Martin Lockley, Scientific and Medical Network Review, Summer 2010 'It would be impossible to convey the immense richness of Suchantke's book in the few pages of a review ... Metamorphosis will undoubtedly be both a comfort and a challenge to students of anthroposophy, and may well be a source of inspiration to people who have never heard of Rudolf Steiner.' -- Science Group of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain Newsletter
