In the US it is to be published by Random House in May 2012 under the title Science Set Free: Dispelling Dogma. In the meantime, people in the US, Canada and elsewhere can buy the UK edition online from the Book Depository, with free airmail delivery: http://tinyurl.com/7offjkx The science delusion is the belief that science already understands the nature of reality, in principle. The fundamental questions are answered, leaving only the details to be filled in. The impressive achievements of science seem to support this confident attitude. But recent research has revealed unexpected problems at the heart of physics, cosmology, biology, medicine and psychology. In The Science Delusion, I show how the sciences are being constricted by assumptions that have hardened into dogmas. In the sceptical spirit of scientific enquiry, I turn the ten fundamental dogmas of science into questions, opening up startling new possibilities. BBC Radio 3 broadcast a half-hour conversation between me and Joan Bakewell on the subject of belief on Monday, January 2, which is available online in the UK on the BBC web site here: http://tinyurl.com/7hjxgqf I will be giving a series of lectures on The Science Delusion in London in January and February, starting with a lecture and reception to launch the book on January 17 at Kings College, London University, sponsored by the Scientific and Medical Network. Details of these events are on the schedule on my web site here: http://www.sheldrake.org/About/schedule/ I will also be speaking in Dublin on January 26 at an event sponsored by The Irish Times. I am taking part in a new media initiative called Expert TV, which is being organized by a company called Meovi. This will be launched in January. It involves no advertisements, but is an online subscription service, with a small monthly fee. Subscribers will have access to my short videotaped answers to dozens of frequently-asked questions and will also be able to ask new questions, which I will be answering in a continual series of new recordings. This service will also include the live streaming of some of my lectures, seminars and dialogues, and live question and answer sessions. All the material on my web site will continue to be available free of charge. The latest trialogue with Terence McKenna and Ralph Abraham to go online is on "Morphic Fields and Telepathy Within Family Groups", and is available here: http://www.sheldrake.org/Trialogues/index.html#morpho ----- David Haith Listen to 'Strange Days...
