Further explorations into the revolutionary "hypothesis of formative causation" put forth by British biochemist Rupert Sheldrake. Since its debut in 1981, Sheldrake's theory has sent large ripples through the scientific community, and has inspired experimental testing that so far has tended to confirm the theory. In this dialogue, Sheldrake describes these experiments, and discusses further developments in his theory as it matures and takes on a life of its own.

Rupert Sheldrake studied natural sciences at Cambridge and philosophy at Harvard, took a Ph.D. in biochemistry at Cambridge and is the author of more than eighty scientific papers. Dr. Sheldrake is perhaps best known for his morphic field theory, which takes a fresh look at memory, habit, instinct and heredity as well as phenomena such as telepathy - aspects of human experience that are unexplained in terms of current physics.
He's the author of several books including:
