This review is from: The Science Delusion: Freeing the Spirit of Enquiry (Hardcover)
This is one of the most important books of this century. Rupert Sheldrake, with the benefit of serious conventional scientific qualifications, takes the scientific establishment head on by challenging the straitjacket that they have imposed on themselves (and us). He is the modern day Galileo, taking things that clearly occur but are ignored by modern science because they cannot be explained within current scientific thinking. Most famously, "The Dogs Who Know Their owners Are coming Home", the subject of a separate earlier study, charts the ability of animals to know that something is happening far beyond hearing or sight. This and many other examples of unexplained phenomena, are studied in this book and theories propounded as to what may be enabling these things to happen. the theories challenge the whole basis of traditional modern scientific thinking.
This is a must read.
