The Sheldrake — Shermer debates

by Neil Rickert

“Through the months of May, June, and July of 2015, TheBestSchools.org is hosting an intensive dialogue on the nature of science between Rupert Sheldrake and Michael Shermer.”

That’s quoted from “Sheldrake-Shermer, Materialism in Science, Opening Statements“.  I found it an interesting read.  I plan to keep my eye on this debate over the next few months.  Perhaps I’ll post something based on what I read.

    • I have a mixed reaction. I already commented on the discussion of materialism HERE

      Overall, I am very skeptical of Sheldrake’s “morphic resonance”. But I agree with some of Sheldrake’s criticisms of materialism. However, I didn’t disagree with Shermer’s views as much as I had thought that I might.

      It was a good debate, and definitely worth taking the time to read.
