Dr. Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and 11 books, including Science Set Free. He is best known for his hypothesis of morphic fields and morphic resonance, leading to a vision of a living, developing universe with its own inherent memory.
He was among the top 100 Global Thought Leaders for 2013, as ranked by Switzerland’s leading think tank.
At Cambridge, Sheldrake did research on developmental and cell biology and has also investigated unexplained aspects of animal behavior.
He subsequently studied similar phenomena in people, including the sense of being stared at, telepathy between mothers and babies, and premonitions.
Dr. Sheldrake’s research on these subjects is summarized in his books Seven Experiments That Could Change the World, Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home, and The Sense of Being Stared At.
In his most recent award-winning book, called The Science Delusion in the UK and Science Set Free in the US, he examines the ten dogmas of modern science and shows how they can be turned into questions that open up new vistas of scientific possibility.
