Rupert Sheldrake - The Science Delusion
27th Jan 2012 - Rupert Sheldrake stopped by at Dunderry Park to talk to Network Ireland, the country's longest running holistic magazine, about his new book The Science Delusion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dn7zVlz1s7c
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, 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.
