"In Science Set Free, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world's most innovative scientists, shows the ways in which science is being constricted by assumptions that have hardened into dogmas that are not only limiting but also dangerous for the future of humanity" -- Cover verso.
The bestselling author of Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home offers an intriguing new assessment of modern day science that will radically change the way we view what is possible. For many of the world's most powerful scientists, we live in a strictly material world, a machine made up of dead matter where nature is purposeless and consciousness is strictly a physical function of the brain. For Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, these ideas are not reality but a series of dangerous delusions that are preventing the discipline of science from reaching new heights. In Science Set Free, Sheldrake blows holes in ten dead scientific dogmas and shows how a new perspective can redefine the way approach the challenges of the 21st century.

While I enjoy a good philosophical romp through the natural sciences every now and then, the author of this book seems to consistently and purposefully misappropriate very nuanced and complex scientific theories to either explain completely unrelated phenomenon, or make ill-infomrmed atempts to udercut them with strawman arguments.

I would recommend cutting straight to the "Questions for Materialists" and doing the research yourself.
