If they do so, they'll find that many of their colleagues share these interests and that the conversation in the laboratory tea room would become so much more interesting than it is at present." Join us for this talk, sponsored by the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco in 2012, in which Dr. Sheldrake introduces his book, Science Set Free, and addresses some of the constricting dogmas and assumptions of modern science, turning them into open questions that can be tested scientifically, rather than being accepted on faith alone.
