Summary: It is desirable to know the underlying theory behind Holistic Management to understand both  the science applied and the methodology. Jan Christian Smuts who wrote “Holism and Evolution”in 1926 provided the theoretical base. Smuts, more than anyone subsequently, provided sound reasoning to accept “holism” as the operating principle in nature. The concept that nature functioned in wholes and patterns of great complexity, unlike the mechanistic world view in which nature is viewed as a complicated machine with interconnecting parts.
