The Common Vein is a web based educational project that explores complex issues by identifying the underlying principles and recurring patterns of the world around and in us.

For Whom?

TCV makes the principles of life and biology accessible to anybody. It is designed with the belief that the complexities of life and biology in order (health ) and disorder (disease), have roots in simple principles. TCV lays down these foundation tenets in the opening pages, and then advances in step-wise fashion to complexity.

Why?

To promote not only learning, but also understanding and appreciation.
