The Science Delusion

sheldrake3

Freeing the Spirit of Enquiry.

The science delusion is the belief that science already understands the nature of reality. The fundamental questions are answered, leaving only the details to be filled in. In this book (published in the US as Science Set Free), Dr Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world s most innovative scientists, shows that science is being constricted by assumptions that have hardened into dogmas. The scientific worldview has become a belief system. All reality is material or physical. The world is a machine, made up of dead matter. Nature is purposeless. Consciousness is nothing but the physical activity of the brain. Free will is an illusion. God exists only as an idea in human minds, imprisoned within our skulls. Sheldrake examines these dogmas scientifically, and shows persuasively that science would be better off without them: freer, more interesting, and more fun. In The God Delusion Richard Dawkins used science to bash God, but here Rupert Sheldrake shows that Dawkins understanding of what science can do is old-fashioned and itself a delusion. Rupert Sheldrake does science, humanity and the world at large a considerable favour. The Independent Certainly we need to accept the limitations of much current dogma and keep our minds open as we reasonably can. Sheldrake may help us do so through this well-written, challenging and always interesting book.

Seven Experiments That Could Change the World

sheldrake2

How does your pet know when you’re coming home? Can people really tell when they’re being stared at? Can science explain the unexplainable? Celebrated biologist Rupert Sheldrake explores such questions in this compelling, intelligent book–and with simple, inexpensive experiments, the curious and the skeptical are invited to join him on this journey of discovery in the true spirit of science. A specialist in biochemistry and cell biology formerly at Cambridge University, Sheldrake questions many tenets of the mechanistic-materialistic orthodoxy governing most science today and proposes certain practical experiments to raise further doubts about it. He presents experiments by which we can determine how some pets know when their owners are coming home, how homing pigeons find their way, how insect colonies operate, how people know that they are being stared at from behind and how phantom limbs sometimes seem to amputees to be still attached. Then he turns to the more abstract area of the philosophy of science, pointing out that the fundamental “constants” of nature are not really constant and that the so-called experimenter expectancy effect may skew the results of any test. Finally, he offers details of experiments by which even those who are not trained scientists can measure some of these possibly paranormal phenomena. A well-reasoned, accessible and provocative book.

Morphic Resonance: the Nature of Formative Causation

morphic

New updated and expanded edition of the groundbreaking book that ignited a firestorm in the scientific world with its radical approach to evolution

• Explains how past forms and behaviors of organisms determine those of similar organisms in the present through morphic resonance

• Reveals the nonmaterial connections that allow direct communication across time and space

When A New Science of Life was first published the British journal Nature called it “the best candidate for burning there has been for many years.” The book called into question the prevailing mechanistic theory of life when its author, Rupert Sheldrake, a former research fellow of the Royal Society, proposed that morphogenetic fields are responsible for the characteristic form and organization of systems in biology, chemistry, and physics–and that they have measurable physical effects. Using his theory of morphic resonance, Sheldrake was able to reinterpret the regularities of nature as being more like habits than immutable laws, offering a new understanding of life and consciousness.

In the years since its first publication, Sheldrake has continued his research to demonstrate that the past forms and behavior of organisms influence present organisms through direct immaterial connections across time and space. This can explain why new chemicals become easier to crystallize all over the world the more often their crystals have already formed, and why when laboratory rats have learned how to navigate a maze in one place, rats elsewhere appear to learn it more easily. With more than two decades of new research and data, Rupert Sheldrake makes an even stronger case for the validity of the theory of formative causation that can radically transform how we see our world and our future.

A New Science of Life

life

The implications of this theory are staggering, from predicting the course of hurricanes to explaining deja vu. Sheldrake’s thinking seems radical because he does not subscribe to orthodox scientific assumptions that the universe operates like a machine; instead, he sees it as much like a living organism. — Utne Reader, May/June 1999

 “As far-reaching in its implications as Darwin’s theory of evolution.”
(Brain/Mind Bulletin )

“An important scientific inquiry into the nature of biological and physical reality.”
(New Scientist )
“Sheldrake is a Cambridge-trained research biologist whose modest proposals. . . have upset scientific orthodoxy”
(Utne Reader )
“An immensely challenging and stimulating hypothesis, which proposes an unorthodox approach to evolution.”
(Arthur Koestler, author of The Lotus and the Robot and The Ghost in the Machine )
