About this product
- DescriptionExamines the realities of inexplicable natural phemen and provides explanations that push the boundaries of science. How does your pet kw when you are coming home? How do pigeons home? Can people really feel a phantom amputated arm? These questions and more form the basis of Sheldrake's look at the world of contemporary science as he puts some of the most cherished assumptions of established science to the test. What Sheldrake discovers is that certain scientific beliefs are so widely taken for granted that they are longer regarded as theories but are seen as scientific common sense. In the true spirit of science Sheldrake examines seven of these beliefs. Refusing to let intellectual dogmatism influence his search for the truth Sheldrake presents simple experiments that allow the curious and the sceptical to join in his journey of discovery. He examines the taboo of taking pets seriously and explores the question of human extrasensory perception. Perhaps most important he questions the tion that science must be expensive in order to achieve important results showing that inexpensive methods can indeed shake the very foundations of science as we kw it. * Looks at animal telepathy and the ability of pigeons to home. * Proves the point that big questions don't need big science. * Noted scientist Rupert Sheldrake is a former fellow of the Royal Society.
