A New Science of Life – inspiring ideas
Dr Rupert Sheldrake interviewed by Iain McNay on Conscious TV
Rupert Sheldrake’s book, A New Science of Life, has fairly recently (2009) been republished and it is around this that the interview is based.
About the author
Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and ten books. A former Research Fellow of the Royal Society, he studied natural sciences at Cambridge University and then studied philosophy at Harvard University, where he took a Ph.D. in biochemistry.
Throughout his life he has been interested in plants and animals. In particular he has made studies of rain forest plants, and from 1974 to 1985 he worked at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) in Hyderabad, India, where he was Principal Plant Physiologist. While in India, he also lived for a year and a half at the ashram – and this is where he wrote his first book, A New Science of Life. Other books by him include, The Presence of the Past: Morphic Resonance and the Habits of Nature (1988); The Rebirth of Nature: The Greening of Science and God (1992); and Seven Experiments that Could Change the World: A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Revolutionary Science (1994).
