In Science Set Free, Dr Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world’s most innovative scientists, shows that science is being constricted by assumptions that have hardened into dogmas, which are not only limiting, but dangerous for the future of humanity. According to these dogmas, all reality is material or physical; the world is a machine made up of dead matter; nature is purposeless; consciousness is nothing but the physical activity of the brain; free will is an illusion; God exists only as an idea in human minds, imprisoned within our skulls. But should science be a belief system, or a method of inquiry? Sheldrake shows that the materialist ideology is moribund; under its sway, increasingly expensive research is reaping diminishing returns while societies around the world are paying the price. In the skeptical spirit of true science, Sheldrake turns the ten fundamental dogmas of materialism into exciting questions and shows how all of them open up startling new possibilities about the nature of our collective reality. This book has ignited debates that are spreading through scientific, religious, skeptical, conservative, and liberal circles in Britain, Ireland and continental Europe. www.sheldrake.org Science Set Free: 10 Paths To New Discovery is now available on Amazon.com

The Loudest Duck dives into the many aspects of diversity in the ever-expanding, increasingly global workplace. Through practical stories, cultural anecdotes and personal experiences, Laura Liswood explains how to ensure a fair and level playing field for anyone working his or her way up the ladder in this new corporate world order. Non-dominant groups - women, minorities, short people, just to name a few - face an uphill battle when it comes to reaching the top levels in leadership. Liswood discusses some of the reasons for the challenges encountered by historically underrepresented groups and suggests ways to overcome those obstacles by going beyond usual ideas about diversity.??The tools, frameworks and parables in the book aim to offer a new vision, a new level of awareness, a new understanding of diversity. If the loudest duck in China gets shot, but the squeaky wheel in the U.S. gets the grease, there must be a way for the two different approaches to be appreciated and not unconsciously judged, especially as globalization continues to 'shrink' our world. This book details why those differences should be made conscious and why awareness of such issues should be embraced and harnessed to the benefit of all in order to create a workplace where no one is subtly advantaged or disadvantaged because of their diversity.

FRED KUTTNER co author of Quantum Enigma Fascinated by the mysteries of quantum mechanics since he first encountered them as an undergraduate, he was delighted to join Bruce in research in this area. He also share with him a concern for the job prospects of our physics undergraduates, which led to our joint teaching of the course “The Physicist in Industry.” This concern has also led me to another degree, in counseling psychology, and a future in career counseling. A concern of both Bruce and Fred is the expropriation of the profound mysteries of quantum mechanics by the purveyors of pseudo-science. they have combated this in publications and by many lectures. (One I recently gave in San Francisco was titled “Combating Quantum Nuttery.”) They believe that their book, Quantum Enigma, also serves this purpose. http://quantumenigma.com/

This interview will cover four major sections in War of the Worldviews: Cosmos, Life, Mind and Brain, and God.
