Présentation de l'éditeur

When A New Science of Life was first published the British journal Nature called it the best candidate for burning there has been for many years. The book called into question the prevailing mechanistic theory of life when its author, Rupert Sheldrake, a former research fellow of the Royal Society, proposed that morphogenetic fields are responsible for the characteristic form and organization of systems in biology, chemistry, and physics--and that they have measurable physical effects. Using his theory of morphic resonance, Sheldrake was able to reinterpret the regularities of nature as being more like habits than immutable laws, offering a new understanding of life and consciousness. In the years since its first publication, Sheldrake has continued his research to demonstrate that the past forms and behavior of organisms influence present organisms through direct immaterial connections across time and space. This can explain why new chemicals become easier to crystallize all over the world the more often their crystals have already formed, and why when laboratory rats have learned how to navigate a maze in one place, rats elsewhere appear to learn it more easily. With more than two decades of new research and data, Rupert Sheldrake makes an even stronger case for the validity of the theory of formative causation that can radically transform how we see our world and our future.

One of the most intersting view I have encountered in the last years. An eye opener. My only problem is the very limited number of evidence and my constant question: as a scientific why is Sheldrake not carrying some of the experiments he suggests that would convincely show the validity of his views? Maybe in another book?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A New Edition of a Wonderful Dogma Buster 13 novembre 2009
Par Dr. Richard G. Petty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
When the first edition of this book came out in 1981 with the title "A New Science of Life," I well remember getting one of the first copies and being electrified by the ideas and the data to support them. There was also the guilty pleasure of reading a book that the editor of the esteemed journal Nature had declared, "This infuriating tract... is the best candidate for burning there has been for many years."

In the intervening years Rupert Sheldrake has worked tirelessly to either prove or disprove his hypotheses, published many peer-reviewed papers as well as several more books on this and related topics. I have also had the pleasure of meeting him several times and discussing his ideas with him in great detail. There are three things that have always come across: his intelligence, his integrity and his humility.

It is sad that when that Nature editor - Sir John Maddox - passed away last year, a number of commentators took the opportunity to renew their attacks on Sheldrake's work. Many of those attackers have clearly not examined the research - some even admitted it! - neither were they aware of the fact that Rupert had provided Sir John with detailed scientific responses to his critique of a later book, "Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home: And Other Unexplained Powers of Animals," but never received a response. So most students of biology and behavior have probably never even heard about this work, and many online sites simply dismiss the notion of "morphic resonance" as pseudoscience.

This is the third edition of the book that started all the controversy.

So what is this book about, and why does elicit such emotional - and unscientific - responses? The book proposes that current biochemical and genetic models cannot explain the ways in which atoms, molecules, crystals, cells, organs and even ecosystems organize themselves. The Hypothesis of Formative Causation proposes that the forms of self-organizing systems are arranged and fashioned by "Morphic fields." These fields provide the templates for the ways in which organisms develop and are also responsible for the behavior and social and cultural development of organisms and social groups. These are not static fields, they are able to learn and establish new patterns and habits across time and space, which is termed "Morphic resonance."

For example, it can be very hard to coax a newly created chemical compound into forming a crystal. But once it has been done in one laboratory, others find it ever easier to make crystals of the new compound. The idea being that the morphic field has learned how to do it. Or another example: rats were taught to run a maze. Once they had learned the task, rats on the other side of the world learned to run the same maze far more quickly. And could it be that the ever-younger age at which people master the game of chess is not only because of the use of computers for training, but also that the morphic field associated with chess is becoming stronger?

You will see why this is a controversial theory, even though it answers a lot of questions, and the research data appears firmly to support it. Having examined the research in great detail as well as analyzing virtually all of the supporting material that Rupert cites in this book, I think that his fundamental ideas are correct, and that they will in time be understood to be as important as the ideas of Darwin and the great men and women who created the theories of relativity and quantum mechanics.

This new edition is well written and even for someone familiar with the ideas, a thrilling read. And if you are new to the concepts, this is the best book to start with.

If you have read an earlier edition of the book, do you need to look at this one as well? My answer is a definite "Yes." Not only is there a new 23 page introduction, the entire text has been updated and there are two appendices - "New Tests for Morphic Resonance" and "Morphic Fields and the Implicate Order - A Dialogue with (the late) David Bohm," which add another 65 pages of fascinating material.

Very highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Opening the book opens your mind 4 mai 2015
Par Alexandra Alexander - Publié sur Amazon.com

Contains your next puzzle piece in understanding this quantum world we live in. Morphic Resonance is not exactly a fireside book, but necessary reading to understand how we are influenced by our connection to the Field. It was an eye-opener for me and helped me understand how our thoughts come together with other thoughts in the existing fields that are already established, ready for us to connect. Is it in the DNA of the Salmon to swim upstream to spawn or do the Salmon connect with a morphic field for the information? How about the Monarch Butterfly migration or the Swallows returning to Capistrano every year and birds flying south for the winter. Expand your knowledge by reading Sheldrakes book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sheldrake at his best 20 mars 2014
Par White Crow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Most of this book is scientific data compiled from Sheldrake's research. If and when it is given more consideration by his peers, he will attain the status he deserves. I recommend the book - but then I have thought Sheldrake was the leading edge for quite a length of time.

This is an amazing book. He may be the Galileo of the current era. Some of it is a bit hard to follow, as it gets technical at times, but it's worth the effort.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Book was not entirely convincing but it was intriguing. 22 octobre 2014

Intriguing but still questionable. I can think of a personal experience that might be explained by his theory. I found his last chapter, where he suggests possible levels of accounting for the phenomenon as the most stimulating chapter in the book. I suppose my mind is still open, but feel that tons more work and investigations need to be done before the theory can be regarded as canonical, or rejected.
