Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The bestselling author of Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home offers an intriguing new assessment of modern day science that will radically change the way we view what is possible.

For many of the world's most powerful scientists, we live in a strictly material world, a machine made up of dead matter where nature is purposeless and consciousness is strictly a physical function of the brain. But for Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, these ideas are not reality but a series of dangerous delusions that are preventing the discipline of science from reaching new heights. In Science Set Free, Sheldrake blows holes in ten dead scientific dogmas and shows how a new perspective can redefine the way approach the challenges of the 21st century.
