Author and Biologist, Rupert Sheldrake, says the science delusion is the belief that science already understands the nature of reality in principle. And, that there is a conflict between science as a method of inquiry and collective investigation, and science as a belief system and world view.
This worldview aspect of science inhibits and restricts the free inquiry that is the very lifeblood of the scientific endeavour. Today’s science is operating under the world view from the late nineteenth century, that is essentially one of materialism and mechanistic solutions.
Here Rupert Sheldrake unravels the ten dogmas of science and shows how we can regenerate science by moving beyond fixed beliefs.
