In Science Set Free: 10 Paths to New Discover, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world’s most innovative scientists, shows that science is being constricted by assumptions that have hardened into dogmas, which are not only limiting, but dangerous for the future of humanity.
According to these dogmas, 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. But should science be a belief system, or a method of inquiry? Sheldrake shows that the materialist ideology is moribund; under its sway, increasingly expensive research is reaping diminishing returns while societies around the world are paying the price. In the skeptical spirit of true science, Sheldrake turns the ten fundamental dogmas of materialism into exciting questions and shows how all of them open up startling new possibilities about the nature of our collective reality.
Science Set Free will radically change your view of what is possible.
